The CABC invites members and partners to attend the Economist’s Future of Energy Week (4-7 October 2021).
Before covid-19, the demand for fossil fuels was already dropping. In 2018 coal’s share of the global energy supply fell to 27%, the lowest in 15 years. Oil futures fell in late 2018, and slumped heavily in the early days of the pandemic before mounting a recovery from May 2020.
Now the world is in the midst of an energy shock that has the potential to speed up the shift to a more sustainable economy.
Join policymakers, energy experts, business leaders, academics and scientists from across the region in a week of discussions to address the most pressing issues in relation to the global energy transition and what a change in the energy system means for Asia.
