SEE Forum Updates


Sustainable Energy and Environment Forum (SEE Forum) is an academic and S&T forum that brings forward the dialogue on global climate and energy security issues of common concerns in the Asia-Pacific region. It was formed during a side-meeting of the first International SEE Conference co-organized by JGSEE and Kyoto University in 2006. The Forum is chaired by Prof. Susumu Yoshikawa of Kyoto University with Assoc Prof Dr Bundit Fungtammasan of JGSEE as Vice Chair. Currently, there are more than 30 institutions in 14 countries (ASEAN 10 plus Japan, India, Korea and China) involved in this forum.

One of the activities of the Forum is the holding of regular meetings among members to update on the status of new and renewable energy developments in their respective countries and to discuss scientic cooperation activities. At the 4th International Conference on Sustainable Energy and Environment (SEE 2011) held during 27-29 February 2012 in Bangkok, the 9th SEE Forum Meeting was also held. The meeting brought together over 30 participants from 9 countries. Country reports and recent SEE Forum activities were presented, including the results and lessons learnt from the JST Japan - Thai bilateral research cooperation project on "Scenario Planning for Future Energy System Based on Low Carbon Technology in Thailand, ODA-UNESCO Program for Human Resource Development (E-Learning Course: Energy for Sustainable Development in Asia), AUN-KU Workshop (Building Academic Partnership through Collaboration and Exchange), JENESYS (Japan-East Asia Network of Exchange for Students and Youths), and lessons learnt from AUN SEED-Net Project. Announcement was also made on the 10th SEE Forum Meeting to be held in Brunei during 21-23 November 2012, and a brainstorming session was held to explore ways and means to sustain future SEE activities.

An integral part of SEE Forum is the SEE Forum Young Researcher program, which has been awarded a JST grant to conduct a feasibility study on renewable energy potential in Asia with a budget of 3 Million yen (November 2011 - March 2012). The study has produced a comprehensive status report on renewable energy in 6 ASEAN countries, including India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam, plus Japan. The 1st edition of this report will serve as a background for developing new concept research proposals related to the matching of technical and knowledge needs, particularly among Southeast Asian countries, for enhancing energy security and mitigating climate change in the region.
