Mr. Iman Faskayana, the Alternate HAPUA Secretary in Charge was attending Asia Zero Emission Community (AZEC) Pre-workshop “The ASEAN Power Grid (APG) in Decarbonizing ASEAN Power Sector” on 17 November 2023 as a speaker. The agenda was held by Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA) in Jakarta.
Mr. Iman presented the Strategies of APG : Overview from Past to Present. Several Speakers from ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE) Mr. Nuki Agya Utama and Mr. Akbar Dwi Wahyono, Mr. Kei Sudo, Mr. Joko Purwanto, and Mr. Naoto Okura from ERIA, Mr. Pramudya from Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources Indonesia, Mr Somsanith Sadettan from Electricite Du Laos, and Mr. Suhanee Sutree Chit from Tenaga Nasional Berhad were also took part as speakers in this agenda.
Asia Zero Emission Community (AZEC) concept aims for energy transitions tailored to each country’s circumstances, together with Asian countries that are actively trying toward carbon neutrality while having similar challenges to Japan in decarbonization.
AZEC is a platform consisting of Asian countries that are promoting decarbonization. Japan intends to contribute its resources and experience to AZEC, by providing support on technology, finance, and human resources through AETI, JCM, etc., and by policy coordination with partner countries. AZEC aims to support new technologies and reduce costs through market expansion.
In the future, it is hoped that there will be collaboration and synergy in carrying out decarbonization until the goal of net zero emissions is achieved by 2060.
