POWER EXCHANGE AGREEMENTS

27 FEB – 01 MAR 2017, SINGAPORE

About The Course

Recently  ASEAN members states signed a pact aimed at ensuring uninterrupted power supply throughout the region through power exchange, similar like it is organized in Europe. To achieve this so-called power exchange agreements will be signed. Such an agreement will enable cooperation in the power sector, including developing transmission interconnections, grid connectivity, power exchange and trading through the governmental, public and private enterprises of the different countries on mutually acceptable terms. We have designed a special and customized 3-day program to ensure delegates learn how to use, prepare and negotiate Power Exchange Agreements in the ASEAN region.

The key subjects of this 3-day highly interactive program are:
* The environment in which power exchange agreements will operate in the different ASEAN countries
