Singapore Electricity Roundtable 2017 Highlights

Singapore Electricity Roundtable 2017

One of our distinguished speakers – Chief Executive of Energy Market Authority, Ng Wai Choong

The 11th Singapore Electricity Roundtable, held on 1 August at the Mandarin Oriental, Singapore, welcomed more than 240 participants from the local and regional energy industry.

The event this year saw updates on developments and challenges facing the power sectors in Singapore and Taiwan. Other topical subjects that were discussed and debated included full retail competition, renewable energy and carbon pricing.

The Roundtable was opened by EMC Director, Muthukrishnan Ramaswami, who gave an overview of the programme for the day. We were also very privileged this year to welcome the Chief Executives of two regulators as our speakers – Ng Wai Choong, Chief Executive of Singapore’s Energy Market Authority, and Carl Hansen, Chief Executive of New Zealand’s Electricity Authority.

Question and answer session

Other distinguished speakers included industry veterans and energy specialists who offered valuable insights and perspectives throughout the event: Dr Chuan-Neng Lin, Director-General of Taiwan’s Bureau of Energy; Kees-Jan van Oeveren, Director and Country Manager of DNV GL – Energy’s Clean Technology Centre; John Pellegrini, Senior Consultant of Energy & Risk Management Consulting; and Paul Poh, EMC’s Executive Vice President for Market Administration.

The Roundtable ended with an exclusive networking cocktail and dinner at Aura at the National Gallery Singapore. Guests were treated to an evening of fine dining in an iconic location with a spectacular view of the Marina Bay skyline.

The networking continued over dinner

We would like to thank all participants for making the Singapore Electricity Roundtable 2017 a great success. We look forward to welcoming both returning and new participants at the next Roundtable in 2019.
