The meeting will bring leaders from industry, government, and academics with expertise in: energy technology & sustainability, and energy education & training. The goal of the meeting is to develop actionable strategies and agendas to cater to Asia Pacific’s growing need of energy related services. The meeting will bring particular attention to the needs of Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SME) in the energy services industry in Asia Pacific. 

Topics

The topics focus on relevant opportunities which pertain to Alberta’s economy. Two of the topics which will be explored in this year’s forum are Education and Training in the oil-services industry, and Technology and Sustainability, in the oil-services industry. This includes developing partnerships to help Canadian SMEs gain access to the Asian energy-services market; fostering partnerships between energy services firms in Canada with energy exploration & development companies in Asia.

1.      Education and Training

With the current slump in oil prices, Canadian, more specifically Albertan firms need to seek alternative sources of revenue by exporting their services. Alberta’s energy model is highly sensitive to fluctuating oil prices for two reasons: high labour costs, and capital intensive oil sands mining operations. These can be offset by the exploration of oil-services exportation.

2.      Technology, Environmental and Financial Sustainability

Canada has expertise in energy services and technology, including clean technologies, which can be marketed in Asia.Alberta has a highly regarded energy brand, in the Asia Pacific market, there exists opportunities for Canadian SMEs. Some of the opportunities we will be discussing are in regard to: joint research and development, the exportation of management expertise, financial and environmental sustainability, and high standards of Canadian energy regulation.
