The 2016 Pacific Energy Summit, convened an exclusive group of delegates from government, business, and research organizations from 20 countries across the Asia-Pacific to explore innovative solutions to the dual challenges of rising energy demand and a changing climate. We thank all of our participants who have participated in the Summit and look forward to robust discussions at the next summit in 2017.
A report will be released in the fall of 2016 summing up finding from the Summit discussions and will be publicly launched in DC. Stay up to date with the National Bureau of Asian Research to be alerted about the launch.
