Clean Technology Startups Can Solve Climate Change

05 June 2017 to 08 June 2017
Manila
Philippines
Asia needs cleantech solutions—innovative technologies, products, and services that enable more efficient use and management of energy and natural resources.
 
By 2030, energy demand is projected to almost double in the Asia and Pacific region. Unless we move to cleaner sources of energy, Asia will account for more than 46% of global CO2 emissions by 2030. At the same time, 700 million people in Asia, more than anywhere else in the world, still have no access to electricity. 
 
Asia needs a new generation of successful cleantech entrepreneurs and start-ups that are willing and able take the risks required to develop the new technologies and business models needed to deploy climate change solutions at scale. At the "Clean Technology Startups Can Solve Climate Change" Startup Space during the Asia Clean Energy Forum 2017, startup entrepreneurs in Asia shared their perspectives on clean technologies, the challenges they face, and the roles of governments and development agencies in supporting cleantech entrepreneurship.
