This session aims to provide the perspective of two members from ENGIE on how ENGIE Asia Pacific has been adapting global solutions: technological, digital and financing, to reduce energy consumption and improve energy efficiency in the region.

Jerome Hamilton, Senior Legal Counsel at ENGIE APAC and Suan Suk LEE, VP Investment & Legal, ENGIE Factory APAC, will share their experience, with concrete examples and tips during their session which will be interactive, practical and business-oriented!

About the speakers

Jerome Hamilton, Senior Legal Counsel, ENGIE APAC

Jerome is a senior legal counsel with ENGIE based in Singapore, the regional headquarters for ENGIE in the APAC region. In his role Jerome supports all functions of the Group but with a specific focus on renewable energy projects, cross-border M&A and the development of ENGIE’s activities in Japan.

At ENGIE Jerome has supported the Group’s increasing focus on renewable energy (solar, biomass and offshore wind) through both organic growth and acquisitions, and its continuing strategy of reducing its carbon footprint, with divestments such as the sale of Glow, ENGIE’s subsidiary in Thailand, in 2019. As a result of this divestment, ENGIE no longer has any coal assets in the APAC region. Jerome has also been providing legal support in connection with ENGIE’s long-term investment in UnaBiz, the IOT company based in Singapore.

Before joining ENGIE, Jerome trained in London with a large US law firm before moving to Paris with law firm Herbert Smith Freehills, working in the energy team and focusing on oil and gas and mining projects and M&A, in particular in Africa. He then moved to Tokyo where he spent 9 years with Herbert Smith Freehills and Linklaters, including two long-term client secondments with oil and gas company JAPEX and trading house Toyota Tsusho Corporation.

Jerome graduated with a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) from Queen Mary, University of London, followed by a Masters Degree from the University of Paris, and was called to the English Bar in 2008 and to the French Bar in 2010.
