    Asia Gas Market Liberalization: Speed versus stability

    Panel Gas & LNG
    Asian gas markets are at different stages of the liberalization process, with the aims of improving market efficiency, increasing competition, and therefore putting downward pressure on prices. However, policymakers are also grappling with the challenges of energy supply security, cost escalation, and growing decarbonization commitments. How will the energy supply crunch and price volatility impact the progress of market reform? How will policymakers balance the growing momentum in decarbonization commitments with market liberalization? How can incumbents and new entrants adjust their strategies to navigate these changes?

    Hard-to-abate Sectors: Role of hydrogen & CCUS

    Panel Hydrogen/Clean Tech & Power

    While decarbonization is starting to progress in many sectors, the low-carbon pathway for hard-to-abate industries remains uncertain. The chemicals, cement, steel industries, along with heavy transport, will require deep institutional reform as well as technological breakthroughs to achieve climate goals. What will be the roles of hydrogen and CCUS in this reform? What are the incentives needed to trigger the appropriate development? How will decarbonization transform the industrial competitive landscape and trade flows?
