Access to modern, cleaner energy is essential to human development. Yet, the majority of the world's energy poor are living in Asia and the Pacific. Over the past years, we see more youth engaging in creating clean energy solutions on the community-level and having the potential to scale and replicate the solutions across the region. Therefore, we invite youth across Asia and the Pacific to be part of the Asia Clean Energy Forum in June 2017. If you are a young entrepreneur in the clean energy sector, join the ADB Youth for Asia Solutions Search!
The Asia Clean Energy Forum is the premier knowledge-sharing event for staying updated 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 build business. In 2017, we’re celebrating the 12th anniversary of the Forum. Join us for this special occasion.
