- Energy sustainability and new opportunities to be highlighted
Bangkok, Thailand, November 2018: With an ambitious goal of becoming the sustainable energy hub for Asia, Thailand expects Future Energy Asia Exhibition & Conference (FEA) 2018, which will be held at BITEC in Bangkok between 12-14th December 2018, to help accelerate its transition towards Energy 4.0 and transformation into a value-based economy. Held in partnership with the Ministry of Energy of Thailand, FEA 2018 brings together the complete energy value chain to one global gathering, including government leaders, integrated energy companies, clean-tech providers and entrepreneurs and many others, who are ready to combine efforts to shape the strategies for Asia and meet its future energy needs. More than 8,000 trade attendees, 1,000 delegates, 300 strategic and technical speakers and 200 exhibiting companies are expected to join the event, which is designed to engage senior dialogues, create new partnerships, generate business opportunities and identify solutions to foster a secure, affordable and low-carbon energy mix across Asia.
Riding on the theme, The Future Energy Mix to 2030, experts, government ministers and top industry decision makers share an agenda to discuss, debate and outline scenarios of mixed fuels and technologies needed focusing on oil and gas assets to meet growing energy demand, improve efficiency and support the transition to a lower-carbon economy.
Future Energy Asia’s Executive Committee, made of industry leaders, convened to support Future Energy Asia Exhibition and Conference. Key themes highlighted in the discussion include: digital transformation of infrastructure; future drivers of energy demand; natural gas project developments in Thailand; and emerging global LNG suppliers.
“With the rising demand of energy use and limited source of natural gas, LNG imports are expected to rise to 34.4 million tons in 2036. The Ministry of Energy is looking to deregulate natural gas industry to third party access to reduce Thai imports of LPG and generate investment domestically. We are now studying natural liberalization plan options to find new players to invest in the country’s natural gas infrastructure, to be new shippers or look for new business partners and opportunities, said Dr. Twarath Sutabutr, Inspector General, Ministry of Energy, in the FEA 2018’s Executive Committee Meeting.
He added, “Thailand is making all efforts to implement the Energy 4.0 policy, which focuses on energy transition and development for energy security and clean, low-carbon alternatives. The three day event is an ideal platform for NOCs and IOCs; national utility companies and IPPs; clean-tech providers; engineering contractors; and financiers to foster the country’s transition from a traditional fuel supplier to an integrated energy provider. It also reflects Thailand’s continuous efforts to promote new projects, attract investments in the energy sector, and consolidate communication with foreign investors and large international corporations, which are foremost on the investment opportunities map.”
In addition, the event will host a 3-day Strategic Conference. The Future Energy Asia Strategic Conference is Asia's premier platform that convenes the oil, gas and power generation sectors brightest and most influential minds to connect, do business and initiate dialogue that will propel decision-
making and policy-making to drive growth and innovation across the entire energy value chain.
The exhibition floor plan will also showcase the Centers of Technical Excellence (COTES) which are the free to attend technical conference sessions. 45+ sessions will take place over the 3 days of the event and will drive robust discussions on technical innovations bringing together engineers, technicians, contractors and department heads - all keen to learn about the latest technologies effecting our industry and having the added opportunity to source products and services from participant companies.
Future Energy Asia 2018 is co-hosted by Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) and PTT Public Company Limited (PTT). It is also supported by the Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau (TCEB).
