Driving energy transition strategies

Develop your energy transition strategy and analyse the “biggest investment opportunity of the century” in Asian renewables at the 2nd annual Renewable Energy Forum on 12 November as part of the Hong Kong Summit.

In a new and improved venue, connect with more than 150 global infrastructure professionals, including Asia’s largest LPs, to dissect the Asian renewables landscape and discover where double-figure returns can still be found.

With renewables booming across the globe, and particularly in Asia, there has never been a better time to connect with the leading players to take advantage of the once-in-a-lifetime investment opportunities available across the sector.

As the leading information source for infrastructure investment professionals, the network and seniority of decision-makers across both LPs and GPs who attend Infrastructure Investor conferences is unparalleled.

Co-located with the Hong Kong Summit, the elite of Asian and global infrastructure will be in attendance. This is your opportunity to showcase your unique value to the Asian LPs searching for infrastructure investments worldwide.
