The Twelfth Meeting of Asia Solar Energy Forum: “Development Trends in Solar Manufacturing and Diversified Application”

17 June 2019
Manila
Philippines

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

Covering strategic considerations for managing 21st century energy networks, the Twelfth Meeting of ASEF will highlight two topics: (i) deployment of solar manufacturing capacity in our developing member countries, and business model development of S (Solar, Storage, Smart Grids); and deployment of solar manufacturing capacity in our developing member countries, and business model development of S (Solar, Storage, Smart Grids); and (ii) diversified solar application and distributed energy system (i.e. solar for urban (building-integrated PV), solar for agriculture/water (solar pump, solar greenhouse), solar for transport (street lighting, EV charging), solar for urban (vertical farming), etc.). In addition, this ASEF Deep Dive Workshop will provide a platform to participants to a) network with excellent speakers on the exciting solar application and distributed energy systems, and b) leverage the resource for ideas, suggestions and possible solutions to more deployment of solar.
