A Regional Gathering — The Summit is an invitation-only event that convenes high-level policymakers, industry leaders, and experts to articulate regional energy needs and opportunities. We explore marketbased policy solutions, coordinate efforts to effectively use available technology and limited resources, and foster public-private partnerships. Themes — Participants explore best practices and solutions to global energy and environmental challenges with an emphasis on deepening trans-Pacific cooperation and address the broad shifts underway in world energy markets through roundtable discussions, papers, private briefings, and media outreach. The Summit receives wide ranging media attention highlighting the urgency of the topics under discussion and helping to catalyze informed energy and environmental policy decisions. Ultimately the Summit aims to provide a vehicle for ongoing collaboration and dialogue, forging lasting partnerships that address energy and environmental challenges jointly. Research and Results — To inform plenary sessions and prompt thought-provoking discussion, the Summit organizers commission policy papers from top experts in the field. The policy papers, along with a final report summarizing the Summit discussion and findings, are also distributed to key stakeholders in the Asia-Pacific region after the Summit.
