Decarbonisation roadmaps will pioneer Asia’s fair energy transition - Black & Veatch

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 14 -- Clear and ambitious decarbonisation roadmaps will help Asia achieve an equitable energy transition, yet more than 50 per cent of industry respondents in Black & Veatch’s 2022 Asia Electric Report lack such plans.

“As a global full-service infrastructure provider with technical and commercial expertise, Black & Veatch is working with clients across industries and regions to identify sustainable pathways that balance the necessity of adopting decarbonised solutions with maintaining competitive advantages and supporting economic growth.

“To meet the diverse energy needs of developed and developing Asia, key stakeholders will require different road mapping programmes, and related implementation support, to move initiatives from planning to execution stages in efforts to achieve fair and just energy transition objectives,” said managing director, APAC, Black & Veatch Global Advisory, Yatin Premchand.

According to a statement, key stakeholders include governments, financiers, utilities, energy companies, transportation and logistics providers, and large energy consumers.

As more integrated generation, transmission and distribution energy solutions will be needed to support Asia’s net-zero commitments, strategic decarbonisation planning and road mapping will facilitate the evaluation of existing and emerging technologies and steer decision-making over five, 10 and 20-plus year time horizons.

The future of energy will include harnessing natural resources like solar and wind power, hydro resources, new biofuels, battery chemistry and integrated vehicle charging infrastructure.

Green hydrogen is emerging as an alternative fuel of the future, given its potential in decarbonising power generation and transport, heating domestic and commercial buildings, and supporting industrial feedstock and hard-to-abate industrial processes.

Premchand will discuss other key strategies for a fair energy transition in Asia at the Economist Impact’s Sustainability Week Asia on Feb 14, during the panel discussion, ‘Power disrupted: A fair energy transition in Asia’.
