In the global pursuit of carbon neutrality, the focus on collaboration within the energy sector between ASEAN and Korean enterprises is increasingly underscored. This collaborative approach aligns with the broader global drive towards sustainability and highlights the escalating significance of pooling collective expertise to facilitate effective progress in the global energy transition.
In response to this imperative, with the support of the Korean Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy and the Korea Energy Economics Institute, the Graduate School of Energy and Environment (Green School) at Korea University in Seoul established the International Energy Expert Network (IEEN) to foster enduring collaboration between energy experts from emerging economies and Korea. Since its inception in 2019, the IEEN has functioned as a dynamic platform, facilitating engagement among government officials, professionals spanning diverse business sectors, and academic representatives between emerging economies and Korea. This platform serves as a conduit for exchanging insights about the energy market, business opportunities, and the latest research findings. The discussions span a broad spectrum of topics, including energy storage systems, smart energy systems, the solar and wind power markets, electric vehicle charging infrastructure, hydrogen, and more.
In 2023, IEEN is set to host the "2023 ASEAN-Korea Energy Experts Seminar: Spotlighting Korea's Cutting-edge Energy Business" as a side event with the ASEAN Energy Business Forum (AEBF). This seminar aims to showcase the pioneering endeavors of Korean energy enterprises and actively explore possibilities for nurturing collaborations between Korean corporate entities and their counterparts in ASEAN. Through this well-coordinated initiative, the primary objective is to generate the necessary momentum and cultivate opportunities for participants to forge energy-focused partnerships with Korean companies, all while shaping and executing prospective projects on the foreseeable horizon.
