The U.S. Trade and Development Agency sponsored the U.S.-ASEAN Smart Grid Workshop, a two-day Workshop in Hanoi, Vietnam to foster U.S. - ASEAN partnerships for state-of-the-art electricity transmission and distribution projects throughout the region. The Workshop took place November 13-14 at the Sheraton Hanoi Hotel.
The event highlighted regional smart grid projects and initiatives, U.S. smart grid technologies, and the regulatory frameworks, standards, and financing mechanisms available to support them. Participating regional delegates represented power utilities, national transmission coporations and energy regulators from ASEAN member states. Representatives from U.S. companies providing equipment and services to the power sector attended to learn about upcoming opportunities in the region and connect with senior decision makers from ASEAN member states.
To promote further partnerships and regional power cooperation, USTDA is hosting a follow-on reverse trade mission to the United States for up to 20 delegates from participating ASEAN member states, which is scheduled to take place in early 2013. The delegation will meet with U.S. companies and associations, U.S. government counterparts, and tour utilities to observe U.S. technologies and services.
