Research and development has generated some exciting new clean technologies. However, in Asia, we are still relying overwhelmingly on fossil fuels to fuel our power needs. Can social, political & business models change to push for greater uptake of clean technology?
At Power & Electricity World Asia 2016, we will hear from Lebanese-British clean energy entrepreneur, investor and commentator, Assaad Razzouk who will be delivering a keynote speech on “The Paris deal and carbon emissions reduction: How cli-fi technology can reshape ecosystems”. Assad will discuss what promising new technologies are out there and which of these might be particularly suited to the Asian region. Furthermore, he will offer his views on how the fossil fuel-burning incumbents might be deposed in favour of cleaner technologies, and how social and political bodies can get behind this movement for change.
Assaad Razzouk is the Group Chief Executive and Co-Founder of Sindicatum Sustainable Resources, a clean energy company headquartered in Singapore financing, building and operating 1,000 MW of renewable energy projects in India, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines; the Chairman of the Board of the Hong Kong-based Association for Sustainable and Responsible Investment in Asia (ASrIA); a Board member of the London-based Climate Markets & Investment Association (CMIA); and a contributor to the Huffington Post (and previously to the Independent, the Ecologist, and others).
