Between 2007 and 2010, Cleantech Group hosted six Cleantech Forums in Asia: three in China, two in India, and one in South Korea. Since then, CTG has run a number of invitation-only summits in Asia, but we are excited to announce that we are now expanding our current Forum platform into Southeast Asia with an inaugural Cleantech Forum Asia, taking place November 13-14, 2018. More than 30 Cleantech Forums have been run in our hometown of San Francisco and Europe since 2002.

This Forum’s uniqueness is as a meeting point between our local, regional (ASEAN region and Asia Pacific more broadly), and global networks of entrepreneurial companies, investors and corporations, concerned with the future of energy, power, mobility, waste and more. Confirmed attendees and speakers (at the end of September) already mean 19 countries from 3 continents are going to be a part of the conversation. Are you?

Why Asia?

Asia is where most of the world’s population resides, with the fastest rates of urbanization, where the majority of the world’s heavy industries are located, and where the majority of the world’s products are manufactured. However, while Asia is fast-growing, it is not very resource-efficient.

Asia is hungry for innovation and is investing in cleantech solutions that can solve Asian environmental challenges and provide global competitive industrial advantage.

AsiaConnect Week

Cleantech Forum Asia is part of AsiaConnect Week – one week, two events. AsiaConnect Week is a joint initiative between Cleantech Group and Umore Consulting. It consists of two events:

  1. Cleantech Forum Asia in Singapore on November 13-14, hosted by Cleantech Group
  2. CleanConnect in Nanjing, China on November 15-16, hosted by Umore Consulting. Cleantech Group will independently run a Next-Gen Energy & Cross-Border Innovation Summit under the umbrella of CleanConnect – the overall event focused on these 5 areas: Environmental Remediation, Smart Environment, VOCs Treatment, Waste-to-Value, and Water. Learn more about our China part of AsiaConnect Week here.

What to Expect

The aims of Cleantech Forum Asia are to convene the only truly international conference focused exclusively on cleantech innovation in Asia, and provide cleantech stakeholders across the globe an annual opportunity in Asia to exchange viewpoints, and to learn, meet and do deals.

The Forum will also showcase leading innovations relevant to Southeast Asia and APAC more generally, and help develop stronger cleantech innovation ecosystems in the region.

This will be a unique opportunity to foster international collaboration for the APAC, European and North American innovation players.

Why Attend

We’ve listed some of the top reasons to consider attending the inaugural Cleantech Forum Asia:

  • You are an Asia-based investor and/or an Asian corporation, looking to find and connect with some of the best of global innovation.
  • You are a financial or corporate investor from outside the region, looking to find co-investors, strategic partners for your portfolio companies, LPs for your fund, etc.
  • You are a young company at startup or scale-up stage with a relevant solution to this region. For 48 hours, you will have the chance to meet a wide range of investors and corporations not normally all together in one place.
  • You are a public sector agency with a mandate to help companies assess the market opportunity and expand into the Southeast Asian region.
  • You are looking to get up-to-date information on innovation trends and players in Asia for strategic planning purposes.
  • You like high energy, positively-minded events for people who want to get things done, making good by doing good.

We encourage you to give it a try!


Cleantech Forum Asia Agenda: A unique meeting point for local, regional and global innovation players

This Forum has been structured to have some plenary sessions, but the majority of time is spent in breakouts and parallel tracks to allow a number of different themes to be covered, and to give those most interested in those themes a chance to meet each other in more intimate, conversational-style formats and group sizes.

Throughout the Forum, we will run innovation showcases – some standalone, some part of thematic afternoons. In total, the Forum will provide opportunities for more than 35 innovative companies to present themselves to our delegates – a mix of local, regional and global entrepreneurial companies. The full list of companies confirmed so far are shown here, some of whom are on our newly-released APAC 25, a new sister list to our Global Cleantech 100 program.

And generous time is allocated to networking throughout the entire event.

In no one event can we cover the full breadth of innovation areas that CTG’s research embraces. Subjects are chosen each time for their timeliness and for their fit with our location. In our first Cleantech Forum Asia, we are featuring  key innovation themes like the future of e-mobility in the region; solar, storage, micro-grids and related business opportunities in a world of decentralized power; the intersection of digital technologies with energy, transport, and industry; and waste-to-value solutions for the circular economy.

The last details of the agenda are now being finalized, with updates and refinements being made most days.
