Accelerating Clean Energy Technology Transformation with the Private Sector

An Asia Clean Energy Forum (ACEF) 2019 Deep Dive Workshop

Mobilizing private sector participation to address climate change is an important issue for policymakers in Asia-Pacific. Sector-specific calls for enhanced private sector finance and engagement for climate technology development, transfer and deployment have been issued by various regional and international organizations, while organizations such as the Asian Development Bank, World Bank, and UN Environment are all piloting innovative green financing mechanisms in the region. In fact, Asia-Pacific accounts for almost half of the world’s value of climate aligned bonds.

Seventy-nine (79%) of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) in Asia-Pacific identify technology transfer and specific technology needs as priorities. Since 2015, there has been a surge in climate finance investments, particularly coming from the private sector – brought about by maturing renewable energy technologies that now requires less public investment to attract private capital. More than 150 billion USD worth of investments in renewable energy technologies flowed through the Asia Pacific during 2015 and 2016.

The objective of this Deep Dive Workshop is to enhance private sector participation in clean energy technology partnerships. The workshop will feed into the CTCN public-private matchmaking event to be held in the fourth quarter of 2019.

The Deep Dive Workshop is supported by contributions from the European Commission and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan.
