Our Vision

GWEC’s South East Asia Task Force focuses on unlocking the potential of wind power in the region, working with local and international stakeholders to accelerate large-scale deployment of South East Asia’s wind resource. 

Chaired by  Mark Hutchinson, the South East Asia Task Force is made up of major developers, investors, OEMs, and other relevant stakeholders which are key to give the necessary push for building out a strong and resilient wind industry in South East Asia. 

Our mission is to create a strong alliance of local industry actors, advocating on the benefits of wind power through dialogue with local government and other key stakeholders, and communicating the socioeconomic benefits that wind power can bring to the region. The South East Asia Task Force’s activities include delivering greater government awareness of policy needs in the onshore and offshore wind sectors, as well as working with different agencies on capacity building and on creating an enabling environment for a thriving local wind industry.
