TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – Gastech exhibition, a meeting place for energy industries such as gas, LNG, low carbon solutions, and climate technology, will be held at the Singapore Expo from September 5 to 8, 2023, according to a press release Tempo received on Thursday, August 3, 2023.
The Gastech 2023 promises to deliver on actionable trade, knowledge sharing, and engagement opportunities for the future of Asia’s energy industry.
As the largest conference and exhibition of its kind to take place in Asia this year, Gastech 2023 claimed to be a pivotal turning point for the region’s energy outlook as it looks to achieve consensus between nations and foster bilateral trade regionally and internationally.
ASEAN, and Asia more broadly, has a pivotal role to play in achieving the global energy transition. With energy demand expected to have tripled by 2040, Asia is home to more than half of the world’s population.
Asian nations face the challenge of meeting economic growth targets, and the energy needs of growing populations, while also adhering to net zero pledges. The region is ripe with opportunities for natural gas trade as it seeks to wean itself off coal as its main energy source.
Many regional governments are already exploring and utilising LNG as a cost-effective bridge fuel between their current reliance on coal and the transition to low-carbon solutions. Following the successful implementation of LNG in Japan and Korea, new markets such as Indonesia, the Philippines, India, and China, have recently started to introduce gas into their import markets, and are driving demand across the region.
With these priorities in mind, Gastech’s gathering of the global energy industry’s key decision makers and investors will serve to offer solutions to the challenges which have hindered crossborder energy investment in Asia in recent years, such as inadequate export-oriented infrastructure, and unrealistic price expectations from importing countries.
As those countries seek to build the right frameworks to boost bilateral trade, Gastech’s strategic conference agenda will highlight the need for increased focus on expanding energy supply, aligning on realistic expectations of energy costs, and implementing more efficient legal and regulatory frameworks.
Gastech, through its 16 international country pavilions, will provide an environment where industry leaders, innovators, and decisionmakers can connect, exchange ideas, and forge strategic partnerships. The country pavilions will serve as a catalyst for inter-nation collaboration, enabling countries to showcase their energy industry advancements, technology, innovation, and expertise, on a global stage.
ASEAN will be represented by Singapore and Malaysia pavilions, while other APAC pavilions include Japan, China, and India.
With a global energy audience of 40,000+ in attendance, including industry professionals, investors, and potential partners, Gastech participants will have the chance to forge valuable connections, explore new markets, and expand their reach internationally.
