During ADB’s Energy Sector Group Webinar: Developing microgrids in the ASEAN region, #WEnergyGlobal leadership discussed the ramifications of developing microgrids in the region. The presentation covered real-world and on the ground challenges, deployment of new technologies, sizing micro-grids opportunities and increasing demand. The team also discussed different business models for investment decisions, managing risks relating to payment and macroeconomic and political factors. The forum advanced the vital role of microgrids and renewable energy as a catalyst for sustainable, rural, and inclusive development in Southeast Asia, where over 100 million citizens still do not have access to clean, reliable, and affordable energy.

Ramsundersingh, CEO of WEnergy Global / Board Director of CleanGrid Partners, Fabian Weber, Director of System Integration & Technologies of WEnergy Global / Head of Joint Operations Team (JOT), Engineering and Design of CleanGrid Partners, Shilpa Krishnan, Head of Investments of WEnergy Global / Head of Joint Operations Team (JOT), Finance of CleanGrid Partners and Quintin Pastrana, Head of Business Development of WEnergy Global.
