Our Energy Club

Asia Centre created at the beginning of 2012 an Energy Club commensurate with its ambitions of analyses and debates in the fields of energy and environment, animating a network that has continually grown since 2006. The Club regularly meets for Energy Breakfasts, introduced by an expert of energy issues or a professional of the sector, and constantly keeps in touch through our discussion forum on Linked In.

Strategic dialogue on energy issues in Southeast Asia

As part of our partnership with the Centre on Asia and Globalisation of the National University of Singapore, headed by Prof. Huang Jing, a first seminar took place in 13 December 2012 in Singapore and dealt with the main issues linked to energy, governance, and environmental policies in Southeast Asia. It led to a continual dialogue between both institutions and to other seminars, as the seminar organized in Paris on 17 and 18 June 2013.
