PETRONAS will host the inaugural Energy Asia 202, themed Charting Pathways for a Sustainable Asia, from 26 to 28 June 2023 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
Co-created with Knowledge Partner, CERAWeek by S&P Global, the conference will discuss – alongside the world’s leading industry leaders, experts, investors, and policymakers – on how Asia can accelerate low carbon pathways and unleash new potentials for the region’s energy sector.
The event is set to attract over 2,000 delegates from around the world, including leaders from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP), as well as a diverse range of senior officials and industry leaders across multiple industries and countries.
President and Group CEO PETRONAS and Chairman of Energy Asia, Datuk Tengku Muhammad Taufik commented, “Energy Asia comes at a critical time for Asia’s energy future. Asia accounts for half of the world’s GHG emissions, and its successful transition to net zero can be an impetus for the world to reach net zero. While emissions will need drastic reduction, the region’s energy system transformation will need to be holistic, responsible, and carefully planned which we hope to achieve at Energy Asia.”
He added, “Balancing the need of the energy transition is even more critical in emerging markets to ensure equitable progress is achieved where no one is left behind. This can be supported through effective policies and accessible financing, while recognising the challenges and opportunities faced by each sovereign nation as it contends with its national interests. Asia needs to act collectively to find a common driver that each country can connect to and push towards a net zero carbon future.”
The conference will feature more than 50 renowned speakers, including HE Arifin Tasrif, Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources of Indonesia; HE Haitham Al-Ghais, Secretary General OPEC; Dr Daniel Yergin, Vice Chairman S&P Global; Iman Hill, Chief Executive Officer, IOGP; Dr Naoko Ishii, Professor and Executive Vice President, University of Tokyo; Madelena Muhammad, Director of Sustainability Unit, Central Bank of Malaysia.
Other esteemed names set to make an appearance as part of the speaker line-up are Amin H Nasser, Chief Executive Officer and President, Saudi Aramco; Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer TotalEnergies; Amy Chua, President of SLB Asia and Toto Wolff, Team Principal and Chief Executive Officer, Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS F1 Team.
