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 leading energy hub and "living lab". At the same time, opportunities are set up for networking and deal-making 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.
"Since its inaugural run in 2008, SIEW has taken off with considerable momentum, as governments and companies across the world have found it to be a useful focal point for fruitful conversations and partnerships... In the long run, we aim to grow SIEW into the premier regional platform where policymakers and key decision-makers come together to map out sustainable solutions for the future."
