Offsite Renewable Energy Opportunities Webinar
Brought to you by act renewable, the Asia Accelerator Webinar Series aims to demystify a range of key topics on the renewable energy transition for corporates and their supply chains across Asia. In part I of our mini-series, “Renewable Energy Market Close-up”, we delve into market-specific insights on renewable energy (RE) options, including the latest in regulatory and implementation updates in China.
This webinar will focus on China, which for many multinational corporates represents one of the largest and highest impact markets in terms of energy consumption and emissions. It is also one of the most challenging; transitioning to renewable electricity is particularly complex due to the availability of renewables across the region, regulatory intricacies, and heightened competition for securing contracts. At the same time, the scaling up of the Green Electricity Trading program presents corporates with the chance to procure off-site renewable energy at scale. How can they make the most of this vast opportunity?
We are excited to be delivering this webinar in association with our carbon consulting partner, RESET Carbon, based in China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. RESET has extensive experience supporting corporates and their supply chains in the decarbonization journey. Joining us will be our renewable energy advisors, Trang Nguyen and Sabrina Faber, and carbon reduction experts, Ellen Wu and Cyrus Lam, who will provide an overview of RE options for corporates in China, as well as a deep dive into the off-site solutions (Green Electricity Trading program and the Green Electricity Certificate). They will share insights into the main models of procuring off-site renewable energy in China, including certificates, and provide recommendations for minimizing implementation risks.
Key Event Highlights:
- Introduction to China’s regulatory requirements on carbon and RE compliance for corporates
- Overview of RE options available for corporates in China
- Green Electricity Trading program deep-dive
- Challenges and recommendations for corporates
This webinar is relevant for:
