U.S. Companies Hold Sustainable Energy Discussions at the ASEAN Energy Ministers Meeting

(Bali) A delegation of leading U.S. energy companies organized by the US-ASEAN Business Council engaged ASEAN Energy Ministers during the 31st ASEAN Ministers of Energy Meeting, September 23-27, 2013.  The mission was led by the Council’s Energy Committee leaders and Kathy Santillo, Regional Managing Director at the US-ASEAN Business Council.  The delegation presented the Ministers with an Energy Priorities White Paper which proposed ways that the Council members can partner with ASEAN governments to support ASEAN-wide energy priorities.  The White Paper was particularly focused on US-ASEAN private sector-led energy cooperation aimed at achieving the objectives of the ASEAN Plan of Action for Energy.
Particular priority in the white paper was given to how to increase levels of renewable power generation and apply higher energy efficiency standards, enabling ASEAN to expand its industrial base.  The paper also stressed the importance of adopting international best practices to attract investment in energy technology and encourage the private sector to take a larger role in providing sustainable energy solutions. The delegates presented recommendations which would boost investment and cooperation between the U.S. private sector and ASEAN governments and private sector stakeholders.
In addition to meeting with the 10 ASEAN Energy Ministers at the Ministers-CEO Dialogue, the Council delegation also held bilateral meetings with H.E. Dato Paduka Hj Jamain B Hj Julaihi, Permanent Secretary, Energy Department, Prime Minister’s Office of Brunei Darussalam, H.E. Ith Praing, Secretary of State, Ministry of Industry, Mines and Energy of Cambodia, H.E. Jero Wacik, Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources of Indonesia, H.E. Viraphonh Viravong, Vice Minister of Energy and Mines of Laos, H.E. Datuk Seri Panglima Dr. Maximus Johnity Ongkili, Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water of Malaysia, H.E. Carlos Jericho L. Petilla, Secretary of the Department of Energy of Philippines, Mr. Chee Hong Tat, Chief Executive, Energy Market Authority of Singapore, H.E. Dr. Wichianchot Sukchotrat, Vice Minister for Energy of Thailand, H.E. Le Duong Quang, Vice Minister of Industry & Trade of Vietnam and Mr. Tran Dong Phuong, Director of Finance, Industry and Infrastructure of the ASEAN Secretariat. 

The Council also met with the Honorable Daniel Poneman, Deputy Secretary of Department of Energy of the U.S.  Delegates also participated in the ASEAN Energy Business Forum.
“The ASEAN Energy Ministers meeting is a vital platform for discussion of sustainable energy development throughout the region,” said Kathy Santillo, the Council’s Regional Managing Director.   One of the core goals of the Council’s Energy Committee members is helping ASEAN achieve their energy goals and improve market integration. It is our hope that the White Paper can serve as a resource for the ASEAN Center for Energy to help build win-win partnerships with U.S. companies.”

Companies participating in the delegation included Chevron, ConocoPhillips, General Electric and Peabody Energy.
