The Asian Development Bank (ADB), the US Agency for International Development (USAID), The World Energy Council (WEC), and the Korea Energy Agency (KEA) did host the 2016 edition of Asia Clean Energy Forum from June 6-10 at ADB Headquarters in Manila. This year’s conference did feature a number of exciting new events, while continuing the tradition of bringing together members of Asia’s clean energy community.
The Asia Clean Energy Forum is the premier knowledge-sharing event for staying current with the latest developments and key issues in Asia’s clean energy sector. Each June, clean energy professionals convene at ADB Headquarters to network, discuss issues, exchange knowledge and do business. In 2016, we did celebrate the 11th anniversary of the ACEF conference.
ACEF 2016 built on the 2015 landmark achievements of the COP21 Paris Agreement and the launch of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The plenaries brought together a panel of climate and energy experts to discuss the role that clean energy will play in driving progress toward Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). Bambang Susantono, Vice President, Knowledge Management and Sustainable Development at ADB opened the sessions, expressing that “clean energy will be central to moving us from the present, to a low-carbon pathway to the future”.
For almost one year Bender-IS now supports the Asian Development Bank with its Smart Grid, Smart Meter expertise in various countries across Asia. Due to the nature of the ADB the projects are all in developing countries like Bangladesh or Nepal. Most of the projects are addressing issues regarding a reliable energy supply, the improvement of the quality of life for the people and help the governments to establish a more competitive economy. In June 2016 the ADB is now hosting the Asian Clean Energy Forum at their head quarters in Manila. Due to our successful work with the ADB missions over the last few month Bender-IS is now invited to share its vision in during a technology session at the ACEF event. We will be covering the topic ‘Vision for smart grid deployment to 2050’ and participate in the panel discussions with other global experts.
