Asia's Energy Revolution – China's role and new opportunities as markets transform and digitalise

Asia is home to 60 per cent of the world's population – some 4.3 billion people – and includes the world's most populous countries, China and India. The regions’ economic gains and a rising middle class is accelerating demand for more consumer goods and a better quality of life. These are the key elements driving a massive surge in energy needed for economic growth in the region in the next two or three decades.

Asia’s energy market, already the world’s biggest, will soon be the most advanced, leading the mass adoption of digital technologies like artificial intelligence, to make the distribution of solar, wind and other clean energy sources, smarter and more efficient. Led by China, billions of dollars in capital investment will drive the region's shift to green, sustainable energy, replacing polluting and expensive fossil fuels.

In Asia’s Energy Revolution, leading energy markets analyst and practitioner Joseph Jacobelli explains why Asia is the world’s most important territory for energy transition and how developments in the region will drive change in the rest of the world. This is an important book which deals with issues that affect us all.
