Asian governments are accelerating the opportunities for cooperation and collaboration to support the region’s efforts towards achieving the 2050 net zero transition targets. There are major challenges to overcome. $2 trillion infrastructure investments needed over the next decade to enable just SEA’s energy transition and to close the region’s 3-4Gt gap to Paris-aligned annual emissions. This year ACES focuses on the big impact opportunities for a smoother clean energy transition. We profile how regulators, utilities, customers, and urban asset owners are preparing for net zero implementation.
Hosted as a hybrid event, the 8th edition of the Asia Clean Energy Summit (ACES), took place from 26-28 October 2021, online and on-site at Marina Bay Sands (Singapore). Held in conjunction with Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW), ACES provided a common platform for regional energy leaders in both the public and private sectors to collaborate on critical issues and opportunities for harnessing clean energy for the future.
As the regional platform to share and co-create innovative clean energy solutions, the summit and exhibition supported Singapore’s vision to be a clean energy hub for Asia.
Asia Clean Energy Summit (ACES) 2020 that took place from 27 October - 29 October is the region's leading event focusing on clean energy technology, policy and finance supported by leading government agencies, research institutes and industry in Singapore. Hosted at both Marina Bay Sands and on our Virtual Summit platform as part of the Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW), ACES provided a common platform for regional thought leader in both the public and private sector to collaborate on critical issues and opportunities in harnessing clean energy for the future.
