Over the next three days, Future Energy Asia and Future Mobility Asia will welcome 18,000 visitors to hear from over 350 CEOs, policymakers, and technical experts about the critical trends, challenges and opportunities shaping the energy and mobility sector today.

Taking place in Bangkok – a capital city at the centre of the fastest economic growth in the world and a driving force in Asia – Future Energy Asia and Future Mobility Asia will together be a vital platform to showcase the policies and priorities of a region critical to meeting global environmental targets.

FEA 2023

Future Energy Asia will address topics from across the integrated energy value chain, including the enormous potential of alternative fuels such as Renewables, Hydrogen and LNG, the careful balance between energy security and wider net zero goals, and modernising transmissions and distribution grids.

Across the exhibition and in strategic and technical conference sessions, the events will help drive innovations that will forge new pathways in the transition to net zero and facilitate the building of partnerships that will bring the industry closer to making clean energy accessible, secure, and affordable for all.

The Strategic Summit sessions will include a keynote address on the future of LNG in Asia, a spotlight panel on the importance of regional partnerships to support the energy transition, a future grid panel on powering the smart grid revolution, and an energy leadership diversity spotlight on attracting and retaining talent.

Globally, transport-related emissions are responsible for a quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions. Modernising the mobility sector in Asia will be instrumental to achieving a successful energy transition and Future Mobility Asia - the region's most comprehensive mobility forum - will play a critical role in enabling this.

Future Mobility Asia will showcase future clean mobility concepts, solutions, technologies, and innovations. The event platform serves as a central meeting point for OEMs, mobility innovators, aftermarket suppliers and technology solutions providers to meet, network and drive forward the mobility transition and transformation in Asia. Across the exhibition floor, there will be a robust line-up of engaging automotive showcases ranging from electric 2 and 4 wheelers, passenger-grade autonomous aerial vehicle, autonomous buses, EV batteries, EV charging infrastructures, enabling software and technologies, components and aftermarket supplies to transform the mobility sector.

Dr. Veerapat Kiatfuengfoo, Deputy Permanent Secretary said: “In Thailand, we are committed to be committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 and net zero emission by 2065, but it is imperative that we translate our climate ambitions into concrete action. By facilitating collaborative business models and building new partnerships across the industry, Future Energy Asia will do just that: enabling businesses, innovators and policymakers to take an important step forward in addressing the energy trilemma regionally and globally.”

Christopher Hudson, President, dmg events, said: “We are pleased to be back in Bangkok and to - once again - be at the heart of a region with a critical role to play in the global energy transition. The path to net zero is not just about replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy sources. It requires us to rethink our energy systems, improve energy efficiency and affordability, and embrace new technologies.

“By showcasing the latest innovations and solutions transforming the energy sector and by generating the thought leadership that will determine the direction of the industry, Future Energy Asia will provide an essential platform for these ambitious plans to take root in Asia and across the world.”
