Dato’ (Dr) Ir Guntor Tobeng at ASEAN Energy Business Forum

22 September 2023 / By Othman

We at Gading Kencana are happy to share some exciting news with our community!
Our Managing Director recently returned from a pivotal trip to Bali, which marked a significant milestone in the journey towards Energy Transition (ET) for the ASEAN region. After a decade of discussions and negotiations, we are ecstatic to announce that the interconnectivity issue between Laos, Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia can be resolved!

This monumental breakthrough is a true reflection of the spirit of friendship, ASEAN unity, and the collective will to combat climate change. Energy Transition is not merely about shifting from fossil fuels to renewable energy; it encompasses the development of a robust and interconnected infrastructure. ‘Connectivity’ has been the cornerstone of our journey towards a sustainable future. With the potential resolution of interconnectivity, billions of USD will be invested in substations, transmission lines, and ancillaries, significantly enhancing the energy infrastructure across the region.

This achievement is incredibly meaningful for the entire ASEAN community, as it will not only catalyze economic growth but also contribute substantially to our climate goals. A stronger, interconnected energy infrastructure will facilitate the sharing of renewable energy resources among the nations, reducing our carbon footprint and paving the way for a greener, more sustainable future.

We are profoundly grateful for the support and collaboration of all stakeholders involved. Together, we have demonstrated that with unity, friendship, and a shared commitment to our planet, we can surmount challenges and create a better future for all.
