Australian energy tech startup Power Ledger is keen to expand business in Southeast Asia, as the region is expected to become the fourth-largest energy consumer in the world by 2030. In early September, Thailand hosted the 37th Asean Ministers on Energy Meeting and Associated Meetings, with Power Ledger participating in the renewable energy conference. Maria Atkinson, an adviser to Power Ledger, outlined the company’s business presence worldwide, with projects in Thailand, Japan, Europe, Australia and the US. Power Ledger runs blockchain-backed peer-to-peer energy trading that can support uptake of renewable energy in the future. It has partnerships with BCPG, a Thai renewable energy company, and Thai Digital Energy Development (TDED), a joint venture of BCPG and PEA Encom International.
