- Event type: 5-day trade mission
- Where: Vietnam and Thailand
- When: 18-22 April 2016
Solarplaza, a leading international solar industry event’s organizer, has announced a 5-day trade mission, which will take place from 18th to 22nd April 2016 at Vietnam and Thailand.
Southeast Asia is emerging as a locus of attention for energy suppliers around the world. For the past decade, the region has witnessed a surge of energy demand along with rapid economic growth and demographic evolvement. International Energy Agency predicts that the surge of demand will continue and by 2030 countries in the region are expected to acquire an additional power generation capacity of 400 GW.
At the moment, renewable energies account for approximately a sixth of Southeast Asian countries’ energy mixes. Various nation states, i.e. Vietnam, Thailand, the Philippines and Indonesia have scheduled expansion plans for installation capacity of renewable energies. Promising as it may sound, the industrial landscape of solar PV is still largely unknown to the outsiders.
For those who are striving to set a foothold in the region, questions regarding the markets, the policies and the consumers may arise: what role does solar PV play in Southeast Asia’s economies? What do the governments, nationwide and ASEAN-wide think about the solar PV? Most importantly, what should I do to embrace the opportunities while keep the risks under my watch?
The Solar PV Trade Mission Vietnam and Southeast Asia is aimed at answering these questions and many others by bringing together international players, including investors, financiers, project developers, consultants, manufacturers, lawyers and other solar stakeholders.
