This programme is designed to help policymakers and professionals from state-owned utilities in Asia build up capabilities in attracting investments and sustainable financing for energy infrastructure. It will feature 18 speakers and experts from the IEA, World Bank, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation, and Singapore government agencies who will share their financing expertise in power sector, renewable energy and energy efficiency projects.

This training programme will help to increase our knowledge base and skills on energy investments and financing.”
