Thursday, March 12

07:30 am - 08:40 am

Given bullish growth rates in power demand and strong policy support from government, Asian countries are seeing a wave of renewable developments. However, conventional thermal generations are still on the roadmap of most countries. How are renewable markets developing in Asian countries beyond China and India? What is the status of recent Asian renewable developments? What are recent policy changes that support renewables? How will renewables work together with coal and gas in the fuel mix? Where are the opportunities for international renewable players in Asian markets?
