Riding upon consecutive waves of success since its inception in 2016,  SETA 2018 again promises  to be a strong and significant platform to
address the trends, issues and challenges in the realm of Sustainable Energy and Technology.  That it is organized in Thailand – at the hub of ASEAN
and Asia Pacific – further underlines its importance and timeliness. The region of Asia Pacific – comprising the mature economies of ASEAN,
the emerging players of the CLMV cluster, and most significantly the mammoth markets of China, India and Thailand – ranks the highest
in global energy consumption.  Accelerated by rapid city development, industrialisation, evolving demographics, and committed to the universal campaign
on climate change, the region is poised to explore revolutionary energy solutions that are secure, cost effective and efficient.
Against such a backdrop therefore, the region presents a vast potential for economic investment, in energy and its peripheral solutions.
In one of its projections, The World Energy Outlook estimated that around US$8.3 trillion is needed to improve energy efficiency
in the main infrastructures of transport, buildings and industry.

SETA 2018 sets the stage to discuss these key issues.

With 4 main topics:





​A resounding success, SETA 2017’s multi-streamed conference was attended by some 1200 delegates comprising high level policy
makers from government agencies, key players from stake holders of both the public and private sectors, industry suppliers,
as well as the academia.   Themed “Towards a Low Carbon Society”  SETA 2017 saw a highly collaborative dialogue between
the government and private sectors, on a full spectrum of dynamic  topics —  from  current strategic policies and planning
to emerging sustainable energy alternatives for low carbon electricity generation, green solutions for transport,
logistics and the ‘smart city’ planning. In parallel with the conference, some 97 companies and organizations
playing lead roles in the energy industry in Thailand and across the region, showcased cutting edged solutions to spearhead
the age of sustainable energy to over seven thousands trade and professional visitors.

Welcome Message

On behalf of the Ministry of Energy, Thailand, let me extend a very warm welcome to SETA 2018, an Asia’s premier platform to address energy strategies and plans.  This exclusive event also seek solutions for issues in the forefront of sustainable energy. Focusing on Asian region, exceptional economic growth will be sustained in the coming decades, bringing tremendous energy needs across the region. Asia critically faces the need for energy solutions that are secured, cost effective and sustainable. Consolidation of efforts throughout the region is an important success factor.

The Ministry of Energy considers it very important to address the renewable energy markets. We have strong policies and measures that support the expansion of renewable energy which could carry our energy solutions in a sustainable way.

It is my belief that SETA 2018, Asia’s premier energy event, is the place to facilitate all gathering stakeholders in energy sector, government leaders, experts, investors to share their views and expertise with others. It is a great opportunity of exhibitors and delegates to learn and explore the new energy solution for the future.

Once again, I welcome you to the event and wish all of you to the road of success in this event.
