On March 27-28, 2017, 87 leading private sector and government representatives attended a regional workshop on “Enabling Private Sector Clean Energy Investment in Southeast and South Asia” in Bangkok, Thailand, to discuss near-term opportunities to scale up clean energy (CE) investment in the region. At the meeting, corporate leaders showcased their companies’ commitments to CE, globally and in the Asia region, that are building momentum for a CE economy. Participants also engaged in peer learning on emerging strategies to implement large-scale CE development and procurement in Asia. Executives from leading Asian, American, and European corporations and government officials from India, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, and the United States participated in the workshop.

A deep dive workshop on “Enabling Private Sector Clean Energy Investment in Southeast and South Asia: Recommendations from Corporations and Governments” was held on June 5, 2017, as a pre-event to the Asia Clean Energy Forum 2017 in Manila, Philippines. The workshop engaged 167 participants from 25 countries. It highlighted recommendations and insights from private sector leaders on regional and country-specific actions that governments can take to accelerate investment in CE solutions in the region. It also showcased strategies and approaches of corporations, governments, utilities, investors, and development partners.
