Youth for Asia Voltage Tank

17 June 2019

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

ADB Youth for Asia organized a capacity building workshop for young people with an educational/professional background in the energy space. The workshop was designed to empower young people in building a more sustainable future.

The “Crash Course – Sustainable Energy and Entrepreneurship” focused on the lifecycle of specific projects and how to make them greener and more “intelligent,” relating the energy innovation with industry 4.0. The Crash Course workshop was designed for young participants on an invitation-only basis.

Following the Crash Course, results were presented in a similar format with the popular American TV show, Shark Tank. “Voltage Tank – Youth Clean Energy Solutions” provided a forum for young entrepreneurs to present their business solutions, developed as a part of the Crash Course, in front of a panel of experts and received mentoring and feedback.
