This multidisciplinary volume articulates the current and potential public policy discourse between energy security and climate change in the Asia-Pacific region, and the efforts taken to address global warming. This volume is unique as it analyses two important issues -climate change and energy security - through the lens of geopolitics at the intersection of energy security. It elaborates on the current and potential steps taken by state and non-state actors, as well as the policy innovations and diplomatic efforts (bilateral and multilateral, including regional) that states are pursuing. This Brief stems from the assumption that its audience is aware of the consequences of climate change, and will therefore, only look at the issues identified. It provides a useful read and reference for a wide-range of scholars, policymakers, researchers and post-graduate students.

The University also strives to create a supportive and innovative environment to promote creative enterprise within its community.

NUS is actively involved in international academic and research networks such as the Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU) and International Alliance of Research Universities (IARU).

Energy Studies Institute

Since its establishment in November 2007, the Energy Studies Institute (ESI) is well on its way towards becoming a presence in the international energy policy research arena. For instance, in the 2012 Global Go To Think Tanks Index Report by the University of Pennsylvania Think Tank and Civil Societies Program, ESI was listed as among the Top 20 Energy and Resource Policy Think Tanks.
ESI provides timely and quality analyses in an evolving energy research landscape influenced by regional and global events. As a leading energy and resource policy think tank, ESI is committed to leveraging the best resources, methods and tools to carry out policy-related energy research and to raise public awareness. ESI’S research have been published in key internationally refereed journals and other publications which includes the ESI Bulletin that is widely read. The researchers at ESI often write newspaper commentaries and appear on television interviews.
As of 2013, ESI has five research tracks, Climate Change, Energy Efficiency, Natural Gas, Nuclear Energy, and Power Generation, and two regional networks, Asia-Europe Energy Policy Research Network and the East Asia Programme.
