CCAN Member Voiced on 2019 Asian Clean Energy Forum (ACEF)

June 17-21, 2019 Asian Clean Energy Forum (ACEF) was held in Manila which was jointly sponsored by the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Korean Energy Agency (KEA), also the International Energy Agency (IEA) provides support for the conference. The theme of this conference is to emphasize the joint cooperation and efforts in the Asia-Pacific region, explore and develop market potential in order to promote the development of clean energy. Based on the strategic goals of the UN 2030. The conference includes five thematic sub-forums: urban energy planning, energy and poverty reduction, energy and financial innovation, clean energy technologies. More than 1,300 delegates from the Asia-Pacific region, including government officials, private companies, experts and scholars, the members of non-governmental organizations, participated in the conference.
In cooperation with our US and Chinese partners, in the conference, GEI addressed similar challenges of achieving carbon intensity goals and economic growth in China. Learning from the US experience in conducting low-carbon development planning, GEI introduced to China a toolkit that has been adopted by more than twenty US State-level governments and co-developed a “Low-Carbon Planning Toolkit” which was adapted to China context. Building off this toolkit, GEI developed the “Renewable Energy Planning Toolkit” that links renewable energy potential with financial options. Our partner in these efforts include the US-based Center for Climate Strategies (CCS). GEI has expanded pilot projects to implement the toolkit to southern China, Sri Lanka, and Myanmar. Specifically, the project intends to enhance the capacity of Southern Asian countries to develop their own renewable energy and sector-based energy efficiency development plans. These plans must include financial and macro-economic analysis and must accelerate policy reforms to improve investment environment through technology transfer and capacity building.
