Highlights from POWER-GEN Asia 2014
09 October 2014
POWERGEN Asia, co-located with Renewable Energy World Asia and the POWER GEN Asia Financial Forum, as part of the ASEAN Power Week 2014 in Kuala Lumpur, is the key platform for the power industry to meet, share information on the challenges facing the power industry and discuss solutions for advancing Asia’s energy future.
Various factors including investor pressure, spiraling development costs and supply/demand dynamics are driving changes in priorities of the energy market in Asia. These changes include increased focus on capex spend, more caution around new markets/high cost development projects and the need to manage risk, compliance and reputation even more diligently. These come at a time when the growing power market in Asia is coming under pressure to reduce environmental impacts.
ERM attended the event as the Sustainability Sponsor and contributed thought leadership on a number of key themes which are creating challenges for our clients. ERM leaders spoke about managing non technical risks in project planning and execution and dealing with environmental and social risk in capital project development. They also chaired discussion sessions on geothermal developments and the environmental obligations of the power industry.
This document is our top line view of some of the key themes and observations from ASEAN Power Week 2014 and our insights. While this is not meant to be an exhaustive summary, we hope it stimulates some thoughts or reinforces some of your own thinking, which ERM would be happy to discuss with you.
