Event Summary:

IPFA Asia: Singapore FLN: Sun Rises in the East: Growth of Solar Power Projects in Emerging Asian Markets


In recent years, as the focus turns away from traditional and unsustainable power sources, countries are increasingly turning to renewables to meet their growing populations’ energy demands. It is not so surprising then that it is not just the developed world turning to solar and battery storage projects to meet this energy shortfall, but also the emerging markets across Asia. 

In fact, the market potential for large scale solar projects in Asia is quite promising given such electricity demands, rising GDP and the abundance of solar resources in the region. While there is still much progress to be made, Governments are prioritising energy security and infrastructure projects, attempting to lure private sector investment with more attractive tariffs for solar and renewable projects across various countries such as the Philippines, Bangladesh, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and other countries. 

A joint expert panel, comprising senior representatives from both an international multilateral and a local power company, will discuss the current status of solar projects in such markets, illuminating some of the key challenges facing these projects in the near future. 

Attendees will have the opportunity to ask panellists their burning questions on the state of play for prospective stakeholders or proponents of solar projects in some of the less developed countries around the region before the session concludes for the wine and cheese, meet-and-greet and networking part of the evening.
