27-28 March 2003, Risoe National Laboratory, Roskilde, Denmark

The second regional workshop of the ASEM Green IPP Network is aiming to present experiences of European players in SEA in different fields linked to the Green IPP issue and to present business opportunities and market conditions in South East Asia. Notably, it is envisaged to discuss opportunities and barriers under the changed market conditions in the energy sector.

Issues such as Emission Trading, Joint Implementation and Clean Development Mechanisms are key features of the new market conditions that Green IPPs are operating within. Hence, they make up an important part of the framework - and the business opportunities - for Green IPP activities and Session 1 presents this context in the form of the European approaches and experiences. The market conditions (macroeconomics, power system and markets, prices, investment climates, policies, regulatory instruments etc.) and opportunities in the Southeast Asian market are then presented both by Southeast Asian parties and by European players currently working with Green IPPs in Southeast Asia. Finally, the perspectives linked to European developments in renewable energy are outlined. What potentials do these developments offer in Europe and in SEA? Which difficulties do the European Green IPPs meet (e.g. with power system integration) and what experiences have been gained trying to surmount these difficulties? To what extent are these experiences transferable to SEA? The last session concentrates on wind energy and on the second day of the workshop there is a site visit to wind power plants near Copenhagen.
