We will also explore the role of startups, governments, and MNCs in contributing to a realistic path towards a sustainable energy future in Asia, and whether we are allocating capital to the right opportunities in private markets. The panel will also discuss the impact of the current crisis on the energy transition, and the role of international collaboration. We will explore how startups and MNCs can work together to make an impact at scale. We will then dive into key technologies for a realistic energy transition, including Carbon Capture, Green Hydrogen, LNG, Biofuel, and Waste to Energy.
