Kitty Bu

Vice President, Southeast Asia,
The Global Energy Alliance for People and Planet (GEAPP)

Impact-driven leader passionate about catalyzing just systems transitions towards a net-zero economy. For over a decade, I have dedicated myself to advancing the transition of the energy and agriculture systems to a low-carbon future. I focus on the nexus of business, policy and finance, helping to foster the conditions for disruptive technologies and business models to take root and thrive. A strategic thinker and leader who gets things done by partnering with a range of stakeholders, I focus on finding creative solutions to unblocking progress towards these systems transitions. My experience includes partnering with business and government on the policy framework and business models needed to enable technologies such as renewable energy, battery storage, and alternative protein. Most recently focused in the tech startup ecosystem, I am now working to create innovative financing approaches to unlock the capital needed to scale energy solutions that can ensure access to affordable clean energy for all.
