ANGEA Chief Executive Paul Everingham had the privilege recently to visit Bangkok to present at the inaugural Japan-Thailand Energy Dialogue Business Forum.
Paul enjoyed the opportunity to outline ANGEA’s purpose, the key role he believes the Association can play in Asian energy transition, the importance of gas to that process and how Thailand can be a major contributor and regional hub for its neighbouring countries.
In conjunction with the trip, Paul had an opinion article published in The Nation, Thailand, which then also appeared in the Bangkok Post.
“Thailand can lead the way in South East Asia by charting a path for a Bio, Circular and Green (BCG) economy that decarbonises the energy system while providing affordable energy. With bold leadership and the right policy environment, Thailand will be well positioned to become a regional hub for low carbon energy solutions, whether it be in LNG; CCUS; hydrogen; renewables or SMART power grids.”
The Dialogue brought together a strong cross-section of stakeholders in energy transition, including Toyota, PTT, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Hitachi, Toshiba, the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand, Banpu, Thailand’s Ministry of Energy and Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.
ANGEA thanks organisers for the opportunity to be part of the Forum and looks forward to the event continuing important conversations in years to come.
