Asia Weekly: Planning for a greener future August 19, 2013

I was on China Daily, edition Asia Weekly 9 August 2013, talking about the future of green energy in ASEAN.

Asia Weekly: Planning for a greener future

By Karl Wilson

ASEAN must also improve its coal and oil technologies while investing in renewable energy

Despite the investment of billions of dollars in clean energy projects throughout the 10-nation Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), fossil fuel will still dominate the energy mix for decades to come.

Energy consumption and economic growth in the ASEAN region have been growing in tandem over the last two decades, and as Asia continues to grow, so too will its appetite for energy.

ASEAN will continue to be heavily dependent on fossil fuels for many decades, says Beni Suryadi, program officer for regional energy policy and planning at the ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE) in Jakarta.

He expects fossil fuel use to increase from the current 70 percent of total energy production in ASEAN to 80 percent by 2030.

That is not to say ASEAN is ignoring clean energy, Suryadi tells China Daily Asia Weekly. He says ASEAN leaders are committed to a 15 percent target of clean energy — solar, wind, hydro, geothermal power — in the ASEAN energy mix by 2015.

“ASEAN nations have joined together to develop cost-effective carbon mitigation technologies and cleaner fossil fuel technologies including use of clean coal technology and nuclear power,” Suryadi says.

Just got the news, my article about Sustainable Energy for All: Rural Electrification in South East Asia is appeared on the latest edition of US-Asia Trade Magazine (US-ATM).

In this edition, US-ATM, took FAMs Talk: Exclusive Interviews of Foreign Affairs Ministers as the cover story.

I guess someday I will be there, right? :-D

But for now, I am on Page 42-43.
