ASIA CLEAN ENERGY PARTNERS
Connections. Insights. Impact.
We are an international consultancy that supports the design and scale-up of effective clean energy initiatives. We provide services in the area of market and policy research; program design and support, project coaching and preparation; mobilization of financial resources for climate and clean energy projects; and communications, network development, and convening.
THE NEEDS WE SERVE
Governments, businesses, and regional organizations increasingly recognize the need to scale up efforts to transform the energy system, taking into account new advances in technologies and business models, the need to increase investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency, development and implementation of net-zero strategies, and the roll-out of COVID 19 recovery plans. However, they do not always have the in-house capacity or expertise to design, socialize, and implement their initiatives.
At ACE Partners, we:
create insights through market research and analytics;
design and support programs and projects;
provide knowledge and expertise on clean energy in the region, including on best practices and finance;
connect stakeholders and build communities of practice;
design and curate events and meetings with practitioners and thought leaders; and
provide communications support to clean energy projects and programs and projects
WE BRING LONG EXPERIENCE
Our diverse team of professionals has extensive experience working across Asia, on issues ranging from energy efficiency technical standards to renewable energy regulatory options, to institutional capacity building, matchmaking for clean energy financing, and the development of communications products and strategies to support the transition from fossil fuels to renewables.
WE UNDERSTAND CLIENT NEEDS
We strive to understand client needs. We listen carefully, ask informed and probing questions, and direct our time and resources to achieving practical and tangible impacts in the real world.
WE CONVENE FOR IMPACT
We bring people together in an environment that encourages the exchange of viewpoints and ideas, knowledge transfer, and open discussion. For example, we have been helping to organize the ADB’s Asia Clean Energy Forum (ACEF) since its inception in 2007. We were part of the team that launched UNIDO’s Private Financing Advisory Network (PFAN) in Asia in 2009. We have also convened many national and regional energy conferences and workshops, managed project delivery teams, and coordinated global collaboration platforms to accelerate the energy transition in Asia.
WE HAVE DEEP CONTACTS
We bring the strength and depth of our clean energy networks in Asia and globally to enhance our clients’ existing businesses and initiatives, and to bring new business opportunities from tapping into our network of international organisations, companies and funders.
WE DESIGN FOR RESULTS AT SCALE
We support the design and scale-up of effective clean energy initiatives, with a focus on these areas:
market research and policy recommendations,
program design and support,
project preparation and mobilization of financial resources, and
We seek opportunities for market impact by identifying and understanding clean energy strategies and archetypes, and then helping clients to adapt and appy them in areas where we see strong potential and a current market need.
WE HELP SHIFT THE ENERGY TRANSITION NARRATIVE
We help organizations to convey the importance of the energy transition and to promote pathways for moving toward decarbonization and net-zero emissions.
