The Future of Energy: West-East Corridor

15th December, 2014, Mandarin Oriental, Kuala Lumpur


By 2035 Asia will be responsible for 51% of global energy consumption with demand growing 3.5% each year. With such clear energy investment opportunities and because NBAD has a prime central location within the West East Corridor there are many issues and questions around the future of energy, sustainability and finance that remain unanswered.

Demand for energy in Asia is a very hot topic. Data from The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources shows that Indonesian energy demand has been growing by around 7% per year, increasing faster than economic development and population growth (1.1%).

NBAD is uniquely located at the heart of the West east Corridor, and perfectly placed to lead the facilitation of trade across the new ‘Super Region’. Energy will play a major role in that development.

Four main themes covered:

  1. The Future of Energy
  2. Sustainability
  3. Urbanisation & Developing Economies
  4. Energy Finance
