Rethinking Energy – Navigating change in the power sector

Driven by national energy strategies, falling installation costs of renewables, and public pressure against fossil fuels countries are gradually transforming their fossil fuel-based power generation fleets into more sustainable and diversified energy supply portfolios. The Rethinking Energy -series discusses key global and local factors that shape the energy sector.

Learn more about the global energy transition and its impact on energy markets across Middle East and Asia, energy solutions that help maximize customer value and optimize power systems while reducing environmental footprint, and deep dive into the role of flexibility in high-renewable power systems and key asset performance criteria to consider in future-proof power system planning.

Rethinking Energy in Southeast Asia to achieve an optimal transition to a low carbon system

Southeast Asia is set to become a key driver of world energy trends over the next 20 years as its energy demand grows at twice the global average. To meet growing electricity demand, the countries in the region are still pushing for new coal power projects over the next decade. However, the rising public pressure on financial institutions to stop funding new coal power projects could derail many of these projects and jeopardize government plans. Philippines and Vietnam are gradually shifting from their fossil fuel-based power generation fleets into more sustainable and diversified energy supply portfolios.


The renewable energy sector in Southeast Asia boasts a long track record involving large hydro, bioenergy, and geothermal solutions which have been deployed for decades. More recently, the declining costs of solar PV and wind have prompted several gigawatts of installed capacity. As share of Variable Renewable Energy (VRE) increases in the energy mix, so does the necessity to include flexibility into the power system. This webinar will provide an overview of the key factors that shape energy markets in the
Southeast Asia region and solutions that can enable higher penetration and seamless integration of renewable energy sources:
  • Get an overview of the key global and local factors that influence the energy sector in Southeast Asia.
  • Understand how flexibility will turn out to be a key feature of future power systems and creates a friendly environment for the deployment of large-scale renewable grids.
  • Listen to real-life case-studies on energy solutions that help optimize power system dispatch while reducing the carbon footprint.

New era of optimised power system performance in the Middle East

Driven by national energy strategies, the falling installation cost of renewables and power-water production de-coupling, Middle Eastern countries are gradually transforming their fossil fuel-based power generation fleets into more sustainable and diversified energy supply portfolios. As the share of variable renewable energy increases in the energy mix, so does the necessity to include flexibility into the power system.

This webinar will provide an overview of the key factors that shape energy markets in the Gulf states and solutions that can enable higher penetration and seamless integration of renewable energy sources:
  • Get an overview of the key global and local factors that influence the energy sector in the Gulf; analyse the recent impact of the low-oil-price on the region. What will differentiate a leading utility in the future from today’s energy companies in the Middle East?
  • Understand the role of flexibility in high-renewable power systems, and consider the potential opportunities for energy storage through the different segments of generation, and transmission & distribution
  • Listen to real-life case studies on energy solutions that help optimize power system dispatch while reducing the carbon footprint
