By 2050, Asia can be connected by an electricity, natural gas and communications network.

This “Pan-Asian Energy Infrastructure” will deepen regional energy trading and will encourage low-emission energy investment. It will increase regional energy supply security. And it will foster clean economic growth.

A Pan-Asian energy Infrastructure is already taking shape through:

-China's development of a nationwide electricity grid to carry wind, solar and hydro power.

-Asean’s Trans-Asean Gas Pipeline and Trans-Asean Electricity Grid projects.

-Indonesia's Palapa Ring, Australia's National Broadband Network and China's Fiber Optic City telecommunications projects.

-Development of new onshore and offshore natural gas projects in Australia, Southeast Asia and China.

As Asia's multi-decade infrastructure boom picks up speed, the case for bundling cross-border electricity, natural gas and data conduits is compelling.

The benefits: lower infrastructure investment costs, increased market flexibility, enhanced supply security and deepened multilateral cooperation.

Bundling will enable future energy networks to carry non-fossil fuel energy sources like hydrogen and biofuels but also wastes like captured carbon. Ubquitous infrastructure also will introduce valuable and innovative 'transport or transmit' flexibility to energy markets.

With a seamless Asian 'energy super highway' in place by 2050, market forces will then pick the winner in the high-stakes, low emission energy game of tomorrow.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
