Ashley Theron spoke to Jon Hov Lauritzen, Senior Vice President at Statnett, at the 2019 POWERGEN Asia and Asian Utility Week events, about Asia’s energy transition, and the challenges the continent faces as sustainable energy claims its place in the race to climate neutrality.
Jon noted the challenge of going from small-scale fossil-fuel generation to widespread renewables adoption for utilities, where generation needs to match consumption to build security of supply.
