Briefer: Recommendations to Accelerate Private Investment in Clean Energy in Southeast and South Asia
This brief highlights recommendations from the regional workshop on Enabling Private Sector Clean Energy Investment in Southeast and South Asia, held on March 27-28, 2017 in Bangkok, Thailand. The event brought together 87 executives from leading Asian, American, and European corporations; government officials from India, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, and the U.S.; and donors and development partners. All stakeholder groups represented at the meeting committed to take action within their organization based on momentum from the workshop.
Private sector leaders identified priorities for government action to help accelerate clean energy investment and development. These recommendations are synthesized into three themes: improve the policy and regulatory environment, strengthen the ecosystem for clean energy financing, and increase government capacity and public-private collaboration.
