The World Bank plans to hold a 1.5 days Asia Energy Storage meeting from October 31st to November 1st at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Center in Singapore, coinciding with the Singapore International Energy Week and the Asia Clean Energy Summit, collaborating with the Singapore Energy Market Authority and the Sustainable Energy Association of Singapore. The objective of the event is to transfer knowledge, build capacity, and identify areas of World Bank support to help Asian countries scale up energy storage.
We expect about 150 participants of policy makers, regulators, utilities, and developers from 20 East Asia and the Pacific and South Asia countries (including China, Mongolia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, India, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Bhutan, PNG, Solomon, Marshall, Vanuatu, and Tuvalu) and leading industry players in battery storage.
Participants will have an opportunity to learn successful experience of such countries as US, China, and Korea, as well as leading international industry players on energy storage deployment. New battery storage technologies and energy storage applications at both utility- scale and mini-grids will be introduced, policies and regulatory approaches will be shared, and financing models will be explored. Finally, the World Bank Energy Storage Partnership will be presented, and we will also discuss with our clients on next steps for potential World Bank support to scale up energy storage in these Asian countries.
