The growth in manufacturing, industry, and services sectors in Southeast and South Asia is driving increased energy demand. Many companies in the region have ambitious, near-term clean energy targets, but they face significant economic, structural, and social challenges to achieving these goals.
Join representatives from leading corporations, manufacturers, and governments to discuss emerging strategies and near-term opportunities to achieve clean energy goals in Asia. On day one, participants will showcase corporate clean energy goals, explore country policies to enable private investment, share successful examples of large-scale corporate renewable energy procurement, and engage in peer-to-peer learning on emerging approaches. Day two will feature dual tracks for private and public sector leaders, with interactive sessions to develop actionable energy strategies that enable corporations to meet their sustainability goals as cost-effectively as possible.
- Leading corporations that have clean energy targets and a manufacturing footprint in Asia, their factory owners, and their Asia-based teams responsible for project development and energy procurement
- Project developers, banks, financial institutions, and insurance companies active in developing business and financing models for renewable energy
- Officials from countries in Southeast and South Asia committed to mobilizing private investment for clean energy development
- Donors and development partner organizations that can help unlock private capital for clean energy
By sharing best practices, this two-day meeting will result in “Buyers’ Principles” policy recommendations for clean energy investment in key Asian markets – including India, Indonesia, Philippines, and Vietnam – and identify opportunities to aggregate corporate demand into bankable deals for financing solar, energy efficiency upgrades, and other clean energy solutions at scale.
This meeting is convened by the Asia Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) Partnership; United States Agency for International Development (USAID), through the Climate Economic Analysis for Development, Investment and Resilience (CEADIR) activity; Allotrope Partners; World Resources Institute (WRI); National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL); and Private Financing Advisory Network-Asia (PFAN-Asia).
