India plans to take more ambitious climate action by 2030, even as the nation pushes back against pressure to set a target for net-zero greenhouse gas emissions.
Plunging temperatures across parts of China have sparked an early start to the winter heating season, likely lifting power demand and intensifying the nation’s energy crisis.
Vietnam's state-run PetroVietnam Power Corp (HM:POW.) has signed a deal to allow a consortium of two local banks to arrange a $1.4 billion syndicated loan for two liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects, the government said yesterday.
China’s announcement at the United Nations General Assembly that it will no longer build any new coal-fired power plants abroad accelerates the energy transition in Asia’s emerging markets but also raises challenges, according to a new analysis by the IHS Markit Global Power and Renewables service.
Vietnam is quickly becoming one of the most promising liquefied natural gas (LNG) importing markets in Asia. Industry players—both domestic and global—have voiced their intent to pursue projects in Vietnam, encouraged by the government’s departure from its traditional coal-centric mindset and the rapid penetration of renewable energy in Vietnam’s power mix in recent years.
China’s energy crisis has highlighted weaknesses in one of President Xi Jinping’s top priorities -- energy security -- that could have ramifications for the power system for years to come.
Indonesia has approved the subsea route for what could be the world’s first intercontinental power grid, connecting Australia to Singapore, with 24/7 renewable power. The official nod means Sun Cable’s ambitious project, that proposes the world’s largest solar farm, the world’s biggest battery, and the world's longest undersea cable, has moved a step closer to reality.
Pakistan only started importing liquefied natural gas (LNG) six years ago, but its growing dependence on the super-chilled fuel is starting to turn into a nightmare.
A recent white paper sponsored by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) promotes the benefits of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the Philippines. But it makes overly optimistic claims about the financial, economic and environmental benefits of LNG, reckons the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA).
The era-defining shift from fossil fuels to clean energy will deliver an unprecedented new boom for commodities—and an opportunity for investors—as a range of relatively obscure materials become essential to delivering emissions-free power, transport and heavy industry.
New Fortress Energy has finalised a contract with the government of Sri Lanka that gives it the rights to develop a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal off the coast of Colombo that is expected to start up in 2023.
The Vietnam government has given environmental approval for Delta Energy Offshore’s proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal and power project in southern Vietnam.
Natural declines and underinvestment in new exploration has left Philippine oil and gas production in freefall posing significant risks to future energy security. The risk is particularly acute given how reliant the Southeast Asian nation is on oil and gas for power generation, industrial processes and transportation, warn analysts at Fitch Solutions. But interest from investors has been rekindled.
Delegates attending the virtual Future Energy Asia conference today heard how Asia is expected to need nearly $3 trillion of cumulative energy investment to realise a sustainable pathway by 2040.
Thailand’s B.Grimm Power will form a 50/50 joint venture to source and trade liquefied natural gas (LNG) with PTT Global LNG, a subsidiary of state-backed energy company PTT.
As national carbon-neutral targets come into focus, Asia Pacific solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity could triple by 2030 to 1500 gigawatts (GW), with Indonesia potentially the fastest expanding market by the end of the decade, according to new research from Wood Mackenzie.
Bechtel will provide front-end engineering and design (FEED) services for Delta Energy Offshore’s proposed LNG-to-power project in southern Vietnam.
Southeast Asia is emerging as a hotspot for global solar investment with over $10 billion invested just last year. In 2020, the region represented 12% of the global solar market and installed capacity has more than doubled every year since 2018, Rishab Shrestha, analyst at Wood Mackenzie told the APAC power and renewables summit today.
Investments in Asia Pacific wind and solar power could double to $1.3 trillion over the current decade to 2030 compared with the period 2011-20, predicts Wood Mackenzie. However, in most Asian markets, subsidy-free renewable power will not be able to compete with coal power until 2025 or later, cautioned the energy research company.
Thailand's state-owned oil and gas group, PTT, will invest 20 billion baht ($635 million) in renewable energy in India, China and elsewhere in Asia, as it takes steps to shift from fossil fuels to cleaner energy sources.
South Korea will launch its largest-ever solar photovoltaic (PV) tender in July when it will offer 2 GW of capacity. An extra 2GW could also be offered later this year.
Singapore-based energy developer Enterprize Energy is progressing its proposed 3.4 GW Thang Long wind project offshore Vietnam after hiring geo-data specialist Fugro to install floating LiDAR survey technology at the site to assess resource over its acreage.
Australia’s Woodside is exploring the supply of 50 MW of solar energy to its Pluto liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility on Western Australia’s Burrup Peninsular as part of its effort to reach net zero emissions.
Norway-based Stena Power & LNG Solutions will provide front-end engineering and design (FEED) services for Delta Energy Offshore’s proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal in southern Vietnam
