Podcast: East Asian Energy Security

by Eric Lee

Keeping the Lights on During the Transition

The electricity sector is vital for modern society. Policy makers, regulators and the industry have to ensure that electricity remains affordable and secure. But, national and international climate targets have to be met, too. National energy systems in Asia are under massive pressure to cope with these, sometimes contradicting goals. The rapid rise of renewable energies and discussion about decarbonization have questioned traditional business models, not only in the energy sector. In the audio podcast, Antony Froggatt shared insights into the latest energy development in Europe and Asia.

Antony Froggatt is a senior research fellow in the Energy, Environment and Resources department at Chatham House, London. Mr. Froggatt studied energy and environmental policy at the University of Westminster and the Science Policy Research Unit at Sussex University, and is currently an honorary research fellow at Exeter University. He has worked as an independent consultant for 15 years with environmental groups, academics and public bodies in Europe and Asia. In 1992, he co-authored the World Nuclear Industry Status Report, a now annual independent review of the nuclear sector.
