Masdar led talks on renewable energy and clean technology in Singapore, recently at the Asia Future Energy Forum and Exhibition, or AFEF.

The event provided a forum for government and business leaders across the world to collaborate on opportunities for sustainable development. Masdar, addressed the Asian market's latest energy-related challenges and solutions.

"The Asia Future Energy Forum is an extension of the World Future Energy Summit, the annual meeting in Abu Dhabi that we hold to enable government and business leaders to discuss ways of advancing clean technology and sustainable development," said Dr Sultan Al Jaber, chief executive officer of Masdar, Abu Dhabi's multifaceted renewable energy company.

Al Jaber added: "Asia's abundant wind and solar resources can provide economic opportunities for the region's developing nations. Masdar is well equipped to export our knowledge and expertise in the clean-energy sector to help meet the rising demand for electricity in the fast-growing Asian market."

The summit is the latest in a series of energy forums across the world that Masdar has organised. The first was in Bilbao, Spain in 2009. The company has also held forums in London and Geneva. Backed by the Abu Dhabi Government, Masdar is committed to ushering in the new energy economy -- a future where hydrocarbons, renewables and clean technologies complement each other to balance the global supply of energy.The forums have acted as platforms to encourage collaboration and investment in advancing the new energy economy.

"In Singapore, we can see the link between economic development and energy demand," said Dr Nawal Al Hosany, Masdar's director of sustainability, addressing the Singapore Energy Summit.

"As populations grow and prosper, the need for new sources of energy to fuel that growth must grow as well."
