Bali Clean Energy Forum (BCEF) is an event where government leaders, business leaders, experts, civil society, international organizations, academia in the field of energy gather to discuss the acceleration of clean energy development.
The theme of the Forum is “Bridging the Gap and Promoting Global Partnership”. It is anticipated that public-private partnerships will be forged during the forum to work towards closing the gaps in access to clean energy technology; capacity development across borders and sectors; and in accelerating the deployment of clean energy on a national, regional and global scale.
Indonesia’s Centre of Excellence for Clean Energy, which is now being established as an extension of our government’s commitment to clean energy R&D, will serve as a conduit for developing our national readiness to enable a structural shift towards an energy system based on sustainable energy sources. A shift of paradigm is required, unlike previous transitions from wood to coal, or coal to oil, the deployment of RE technologies represents a major shift from conventional energy systems and infrastructure.
The Centre will facilitate this shift by providing investment clarity and certainty, enabling technology diffusion, and developing a cross sector national capacity. The Bali Clean Energy Forum that will be held in Nusa Dua Bali on 11-12 February 2016 will introduce the Centre of Excellence for Clean Energy to the national, regional and international community.
The Bali Clean Energy Forum aims to bring together government leaders, business leaders, international organizations, civil society and youth groups to discuss the framework and actions to bridge technological gaps and accelerate the development of clean energy at the national, regional and global level through global partnership.
Expected outputs of the event are:
Government leaders agree on a common platform for bridging the gap and promoting global partnership in accelerating clean energy development.
Business leaders demonstrate commitment to accelerate investment in clean energy development.
Participants (leaders, experts, civil society, and youth groups) define actions for addressing technological gaps and promoting global partnership in clean energy development.
