Powerful ASIA Energy & Technology Platform 

Date: 8-10 March 2017

Venue: Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre, Bangna, Bangkok,Thailand

ASEAN countries project to expand development and investment in Energy and Technology. Thailand is one of the most environmentally conscientious places for energy. The country also has the second-highest primary energy demand in ASEAN. Two reasons why it is an excellent and powerful place to discuss and exchange about the future of Sustainable Energy and Carbon-Fighting Energy Technology.

With increasing importance of sustainable energy and green environment issues in the region, and worldwide, particularly the threat to human and ecological sustainability, the portfolio of sustainable energy technologies is becoming high on the agenda for the sustainable energy industry. An increasingly broad range of circumstances, offering great investment opportunities amongst the ten members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) – along with China and India – are shifting the center of gravity of the global energy system towards Asia. Energy demand in Southeast Asia has expanded by two-and-a- half-times since 1990, its rate of growth among the fastest in the world.

The premier Asian annual energy and technology event, Sustainable Energy & Technology Asia (SETA), is ongoing. Its aim is to develop an international platform for the value chain of energy, to meet and discuss the latest issues in policy planning and technology advancement, and to support the global low-carbon advocacy.

SETA became a significant emerging Asian event comprised of multi-streamed industries. The conference’s program aims to address the latest commercial, technical and specialized issues in policy and planning. The trade show floor features over a hundred exhibitors, altogether hosting 5,000 attendees from 42 countries.

SETA’s commitment is to showcase cutting edge projects from energy innovations. SETA believes that in order for the policies to be effective, there should be integration in CEO Forum programs. Thus, the true essence of SETA is the attendance and collaboration of hundreds of high-level executives and government ministers who exclusively represent the Asian Energy direction.

“Towards A Low Carbon Society”

SETA 2017 is a three-day international conference that enables exhibition and networking. It is an appropriate platform for meeting and exchanging of knowledge about Sustainable Energy and Technology between ASEAN and overseas countries. Supported by the Thai government and the private sector association, this must-see event will allow Thailand to be the representative country and the “place to be” for meetings between energy and technology industrial partners. It will provide an appropriate venue for contribution and sharing of information among thousands of prospected delegates over ASEAN countries and around the world.

This is an important first step for the Thai energy sector to collaborate with international corporations. With full support from the Ministry of Energy of Thailand, we can move forward together with the ASEAN and international energy industries.
