REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Trilliant, a global smart communications leader for smart grid and smart city today announced that Head of Global Corporate Marketing, Sonita Lontoh, will participate in the 2015 World Economic Forum on East Asia taking place in Jakarta, Indonesia, April 19-21. President Joko Widodo of Indonesia will give the keynote address.
Lontoh will speak at a working session titled "Energy Reforms for Sustained Growth." The drop in global oil prices, combined with investment needs and fast technology innovation, has opened an historic window for reforms. Many countries in the East Asia region have started reforming their energy policies which can have important effects on proper functioning of energy markets, on energy efficiency and on the ability to attract investments. Building on insights from the World Economic Forum's Global Energy Performance Index, this session will explore how to create effective energy reforms, with a particular emphasis on Indonesia.
"Energy reform is one of the strategic imperatives in our world today," said Espen Mehlum, Head of Knowledge Management and Integration, Energy Industries, of the World Economic Forum, "We look forward to the innovative thinking and possible solutions that will progress energy reforms in East Asia."
"The World Economic Forum is the pre-eminent international institution committed to improving the state of the world through public-private cooperation," said Sonita Lontoh, Head of Global Corporate Marketing at Trilliant. "As a US-based energy technology company with global presence, we are honored for the opportunity to participate in this important discussion to help progress energy reforms in Asia, one of the fastest-growing economic regions in the world."
