The Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW) is an annual platform for energy professionals, policymakers and commentators to discuss and share best practices and solutions within the global energy space.
The appetite for economic development and urban progress, coupled with climate change concerns and the development of more efficient energy technologies, is driving change among consumers and energy industries.
SIEW aims to facilitate the exchange of ideas and discussions on pertinent energy-related issues, while simultaneously meeting the strategic objectives of Singapore’s commitment to becoming a global leader among energy companies converging on the event, as well as to provide a platform to showcase innovative products and solutions in the energy marketplace.
First held in 2008, SIEW is organised by the Singapore Energy Market Authority (EMA), a statutory board formed in 2001 under the aegis of the Ministry of Trade and Industry. EMA is tasked to promote effective competition in the energy market, ensure a reliable and secure energy supply, and develop a dynamic energy sector in Singapore.
SIEW 2018 Theme: Transforming Energy: Invest, Innovate, Integrate
The deployment and integration of new technologies, and the growth in energy demand are transforming the energy landscape. To facilitate this transition, it is important to address capital market barriers and foster an enabling environment for infrastructure investment. Policymakers, investors and industry leaders must ride this wave of opportunity to invest, innovate and integrate energy systems for a more resilient energy future.
