Third CAREC Energy Investment Forum | Asian Development Bank

At the forefront of growth and development in Asia and the Pacific

Third CAREC Energy Investment Forum

Event | 11 - 12 September 2018 Batumi, Georgia
Time of event

09:00–18:00

Background

Adopting clean-energy technologies is crucial for member countries of the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) Program. However, even with the help of multilateral financial institutions such as ADB, CAREC countries will not be able to meet all their clean-energy investment needs. To help CAREC countries learn about and invest in energy, ADBI and ADB will co-sponsor the Third Energy Investment Forum, which will advance policy reforms and energy investment by highlighting energy needs and opportunities in CAREC countries.

The forum will bring together over 250 participants, connecting high-technology providers, project developers, investors, and policy makers to enable high-technology projects in the CAREC region, and increase the awareness of decision makers and opinion leaders about global energy trends and recent energy innovations. An exhibit of high technologies will run parallel to the 2-day forum.

The event will present and discuss a range of new energy technologies that could be quickly adopted in central Asia.

Objectives
  • Introduce CAREC countries to new energy technologies and relevant policy reforms
  • Introduce potential investors to investment opportunities in CAREC countries
  • Promote discussion among government officials and experts, share policy insights and country experiences related to clean-energy technologies, and increase awareness about global energy trends and recent energy innovations
Participants

Over 250 government officials from the energy sector in CAREC countries, senior management and staff from multilateral and bilateral organizations, private investors, and experts on clean energy.

Output
  • Shared knowledge on and experiences in responding to the challenges of adopting clean-energy technologies
  • Enhanced understanding by policy makers of energy technologies and relevant policy reforms
  • Presentation materials to be uploaded to the ADBI website
  • Possible encouragement of investments in energy infrastructure in CAREC countries
