The first live event in over 12 months for many participants, the meeting highlighted how Thailand is once again open for business. Eased travel entry restrictions and B2B events support were included as the world adjusts to the new normal.

The event included a short discussion, Thailand Energy Talks. Participants represented the Thai Biogas Trade Association (TBTA), the Electricity Vehicle Association of Thailand (EVAT) and Sumitomo SHI FW, a global provider of clean energy solutions.

The road to net zero

The talks highlighted the direction of travel towards net zero and the rise in renewable energy and advanced technology adoption. They elaborated on the opportunities these present for energy sector investors both locally and internationally.

Hoare shared his excitement about the event and the opportunities it brought, “It’s an exciting market with opportunities across the power and electricity industry, in a country that is taking real steps in modernising the sector and transitioning to a lower carbon future, supported by the government’s net-zero carbon goals, announced last year.

“In SETA we feel that we have the ideal partner, the leading power event in Thailand which complements our own journey to delivering an end-to-end event for the ASEAN power sector. They are driven by a fantastic team and we are very much looking forward to working closely with them in the delivery of the event in September.”

September 2022

Following the success of the launch event, the combined Enlit Asia, SETA, Solar+Storage Asia event in September is highly anticipated.

Key personnel within the ASEAN energy sector will gather at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre (BITEC) for this next iteration.

80% of the next event’s prime exhibition space has been sold to participating exhibitors from more than 15 countries.

The event is on track to boast over 350 exhibitors showcasing technology and solutions supporting the ASEAN energy sector’s continued transition to a lower-carbon future.

An attendee count of over 10 000 has already been confirmed.

The conference is expected to attract many high-profile speakers from Thailand and across the ASEAN region, with topics of strategic and commercial importance to the region’s power value chain.

All things energy

The event in September will provide a platform for those in the power industry to engage in meaningful conversations surrounding the increasingly complex topics related to energy.

It will further allow them to gain valuable industry insights and a place to network in person alongside industry peers.

Working alongside Hoare are SETA partners; SETA Show Director, Khun Wuttaya Hnunbhakdi and SETA Executive Director, Khun Napapadol Sukkasem.

The launch was opened by Dr Prajin Juntong, Chairman of SETA & SSA 2022, Chairperson of the Committee on Higher Education, Science, Research & Innovation, The Senate and Vice Chairman of the Committee on Extraordinary Affairs, Senate Affairs Committee, Kingdom of Thailand.

Prajin commented, “It is indispensable for all sectors, energy and related fields, to prepare for the Energy Transition Era.

“SETA, Solar+Storage Asia and Enlit Asia will be Thailand’s major international platforms to push and lead for access to energy equality in terms of knowledge, technology and energy innovation.”
