APO International Conference

Over the last few months, Global Energy Initiative has been working with the Asian Productivity Organization to help shed light on some of the growing issues of productivity, sustainability, and inclusive development of energy in the Asia-Pacific region.  To help shed light on these topics GEI will be co-organizing 1 of the 3 strands of this year's APO International Conference in Taiwan:

How will Green Energy Shape Our Future?

Time: Thursday March 13, 13:30 -17:10 PM

Venue: Room 101 CD, Taipei International Convention Center


Traditional energies had provided the backdrop for the last century’s industrial rapid growth. But, in view of the negative impact these energy sources have to our environment, we question: will they be able to sustain us for another century? How are we going to satisfy the increasing demand from our population and industrial growth? History has taught us that a diverse energy portfolio is better than a single energy source for a nation. However, are the other energy sources ready for the main stage? How can we nurture the growth of renewable energies? In this keynote, we hope to address this intractable topic through policy, technology and market place.
