Event: Asian Utility Week
Date: 24- 25 May 2017
Venue: Impact Arena, Exhibition and Convention Center, Bangkok, Thailand

Press Release, 24 March 2017:  For the first time, it’s free to attend for everyone!

Asian Utility Week is a large-scale expo with conference designed specifically for Asian utilities who seek to transform their utility business model to include digital enablers. It is known as Asia’s leader in Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and features other innovations designed specifically to improve the customer’s experience of energy services.

Our core theme is: “Building the infrastructure to support utilities operational excellence goals and future energy service”. Energy Services is a major new business category for Asian utility businesses and includes Rooftop Solar + Storage Programs; Microgrid Services; Smart City Infrastructure; Energy Management Programs; IoT Connected Home and Business Infrastructure.

Most of these new services hinge on data sourced from the AMI programs that are being rollout out across Asia and are bolstered by the liberalisation of energy markets encouraging a more competitive retail market operating environment. The liberalisation of the retail electricity markets is intended to give consumers more options to manage their energy cost. Competition among the retailers will encourage improved services, greater efficiency, competitive pricing and product innovation for the benefit of consumers.

Event: Global Waste Management Conference (GWMC) 2017
Date: August 1st – 2nd, 2017
Venue: Pullman Bangkok Grande Sukhumvit, Bangkok, Thailand

Having developed its industrial base and achieved high economic growth for the past few decades, today, Asia is highly urbanised and industrialised. This has had a major impact on the environment – heaps of waste generated; growing even faster than the rate of urbanisation. Based on estimates, the world cities generated 1.3 billion tonnes of waste annually with Asia accountable for 1 million tonnes per day. With current urbanisation and population growth rate, the global waste generation is estimated to rise to 2.2 billion tonnes by 2025.

A World Bank study showed that urban areas in Asia spent USD 25 million per year on solid-waste management, and this figure will increase to USD 47 million per year. Despite the huge expenditures, urban areas in most Asia pacific are still grappling with the challenge of preventing environmental degradation due to non-systematic waste management.  Apart from the contamination of water resources and severe air pollution, the health hazard is another key issue to be addressed. Waste management has become an important issue in the Asia-Pacific region for building sustainable and liveable cities, and it needs to be resolved through an integrated systems that are efficient, sustainable, and socially supported, and policy-based approach.

The hosting of the inaugural Global Waste Management Conference 2017 under the overarching theme, “Building Sustainability in an Urbanised World through Strategic Waste Management” is designed as a platform to:

  • Address the rising issues in relation to negative negative impacts of waste on health and environment as well as working on waste disposal through economically feasible methods;
  • Integrate efforts to develop an international / regional strategy for recycling and waste management that considers policies, legislatures and implementation mechanism;
  • Promote investments in the field of recycling and waste management;
  • Review of local and international experiences in the field of recycling and waste management;
  • Review the modern methods, technologies and solutions for good management of industrial, medical and municipality waste.

Organized by Confexhub, the GWMC 2017 is expected to attract over 300 delegates represented by 25 countries comprising international organisations, policy-makers, municipal councils, government officials, industry practitioners of the waste management industry.

A historic Year for Powertrends

2017 is a historic year. On this 50th year of its founding of ASEAN, the 35th ASEAN Ministers of Energy Meeting (AMEM) will be held in Manila. In parallel, the ASEAN Energy Business Forum (AEBF), the high level-conference of the private sector involved in energy and senior energy officials of ASEAN is being organized to be incorporated with Powertrends 2017 which marks its 12th anniversary. Powertrends and AEBF will be held at the SMX Convention Center on September 27-29, 2017.

There will be 3 days of sharing market information, knowledge and business opportunities and the “golden” opportunity for networking with the ASEAN energy family in this year’s Powertrends series. Powertrends 2017 will be officially opened by the Ministers of Energy of the ASEAN member countries, accompanied by their senior officials of energy and accompanying business groups. Previously a biennial event, Powertrends went annual beginning 2016 against the backdrop of escalating energy demand, the challenge to cut down carbon dioxide (CO2) emission and significant global developments.

Incorporated with Powertrends are Energy Expo 2017 and Electech/Lightech 2017

  • PowerTrends 2017 focuses on Power generation, Transmission, Distribution and Management.
  • Energy Expo 2017 focuses on Renewable Energy, Natural Gas/LNG, Oil and Gas Exploration, Coal Mining and Processing and Nuclear Energy.
  • Electech/Lightech 2017 focuses on Digital Directions on Electricity, Energy Efficiency, Electrical Technologies and Lighting.

First organized in 1995 with the Department of Energy and the National Power Corporation, PowerTrends is the longest-running international energy event in the Philippines. PowerTrends is attended by senior officials of private and government energy-related companies, investors and representatives of financial institutions. The occasion provides a platform for close interaction among energy players and government authorities.

The last PowerTrends series held September 21-23, 2016 at the SMX Convention Center presented products of international energy players from 16 countries, prominently led by the National Pavilion of Germany. One special feature of last year’s Powertrends was the roll out of the Access to Sustainable Energy Program by the World Bank-EU. For this, some US $23.24 million was made available for purchase of solar home systems for 40,500 households and for funding small grid-connected solar power plants for a total of new renewable energy generation capacity of 14 MW. The fund was provided by the EU-World Bank Trust fund.
