The regional event is expected to attract more than 8,000 delegates from over 85 countries across Asia and the rest of the world, and brings together “POWER-GEN Asia” and “Renewable Energy World Asia” under one roof, as it marks 25 consecutive years as the continent’s premier power industry event, said Areepong Bhoocha-Oom, permanent secretary of the Energy Ministry.
