The Sixth Asia Clean Energy Forum 2011, themed “New Business Models and Policy Drivers - Building the Low-Carbon Future,” took place from 22-24 June 2011 in Manila, Philippines. The event was organized by Asian Development Bank (ADB), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and the World Resources Institute (WRI), and aimed to promote best practices in clean energy policy and regulation, financing and investment, innovative business models, and energy access.

More than 550 participants from over 50 countries, representing governments, financial institutions, civil society, academia, international organizations, and the private sector gathered in daily plenaries, breakout sessions, and parallel side events to discuss innovative and creative methods to encourage to large-scale clean energy development and deployment.

Important recurring messages of the Forum included: developing financial mechanisms to more effectively link both large and small scale project developers with private and public financiers; strengthening capacity to design and implement business models for clean and renewable energy projects; creating an enabling environment for markets; maturing the market for renewables; and addressing operational and technical dimensions of renewable energy projects to develop credible financial products.
