SIEW 2016: New Energy Realities, 24-28 October 2016, Marina Bay Sands




Now in its ninth year, SIEW 2016 will be held from 24 to 28 October 2016 at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. The theme this year is "New Energy Realities". The theme reflects the opportunities and challenges we face in the current environment of an excess supply of oil and gas. Oil prices have stayed down for a longer period than most had expected. This has discouraged new upstream investments, which would impact future supply. At the same time, the Paris Agreement following COP21 has given new impetus to the deployment of renewables. Technology progress has also continued to make energy production, systems and networks smarter, heralding new possibilities. Against this backdrop, SIEW 2016 will discuss how we can work together to navigate this period of change.

For the first time, SIEW 2016 will host The 26th International Photovoltaic Science and Engineering Conference and Exhibition (PVSEC-26) as part of the Asia Clean Energy Summit (ACES). There will also be a special edition of the Asian Energy Financial and Investment Conference.

SIEW is the foremost platform for top policymakers, energy practitioners and commentators to discuss energy issues, strategies and solutions. SIEW brings together a robust line-up of world's leading conferences, exhibitions, roundtables and networking events to provide insights and perspectives on the emerging trends and innovations across the energy spectrum of oil & gas, clean and renewable energy, and energy infrastructure financing – in one week, one location.

ESI is a Supporting Organisation for SIEW 2016 and will be hosting one roundtable:
Roundtable I: Strengthening Cybersecurity in the Utilities Sector
Date: 28 October 2016, Friday
Time: 09:00 – 12:00 hrs
