Powering ASEAN’s Growth

Territorial oil disputes, rising fuel prices, nuclear disasters and choking smog levels have brought energy issues sharply into focus in recent years. Opinion polls have highlighted the concerns from all countries about the safety, affordability and sustainable supply of energy. This paper from Ipsos Business Consulting considers the energy challenges facing ASEAN countries up to the end of this decade and how they will shape the region in subsequent years. As the ASEAN economies continue to grow, so too will consumption rates of energy and hence, fossil fuels. This could create further strains on overloaded grids and further pollution in the skies and waterways. Ipsos will consider some the technologies and trends that could help to avert this disastrous scenario.
