Areepong Bhoocha-Oom, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Energy of Thailand has launched the ‘Future Energy Asia Exhibition and Conference’ as a major initiative towards securing the path to Thailand’s Energy 4.0. The transformation and development of Thailand is a major priority for the government which creates incredible business opportunities for both integrated and non-integrated energy companies globally. As such, ‘Future Energy Asia Exhibition and Conference’ is the perfect platform for NOCs and IOCs to foster the transition from traditional fuel suppliers to integrated energy providers for a more efficient and sustainable energy mix across Asia.
Globally energy demand will increase by around 30% to 2030, driven by increasing prosperity in developing countries and by fast growing emerging markets. The energy mix is changing driven by technology and environment concerns.
The primary demand will still be Oil and Gas but industry is adapting and changing and is seeing these traditional fossil fuels provide the transition to the evolution that is underway. Natural Gas and LNG will be the primary fuel source for Asia’s continued development.
Future Energy Asia under support of the Thailand Ministry of Energy promises to be the largest energy industry gathering Asia has ever seen. Focusing on oil, gas and renewables, the event is set forth to outline the perfect scenarios of mixed fuels and technologies needed to meet growing energy demand, improve efficiency and support the transition to a lower-carbon economy. It will be held from 12–14 December 2018 at BITEC, Thailand with over 15 000 visitors, 2500 delegates, 300 speakers and over 600 exhibiting companies.
