SINGAPORE, June 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Wood Mackenzie invites registration for its inaugural Power & Renewables Asia Pacific (APAC) Conference on June 22-24.

Wood Mackenzie Asia Pacific Head of Power and Renewables, Alex Whitworth, said: «China, Japan and South Korea have all announced net-zero targets by 2050 and 2060. This virtual conference is an excellent platform to discuss expectations for climate change action in these key markets and set the way forward for industry players.»

The three-day event will also address topics on policies, next-generation technologies, and investment strategies that will help APAC markets navigate the energy transition.
