===8th Asia Clean Energy Forum 2013===
 
ADB and USAID have jointly organized the Asia Clean Energy Forum (ACEF) since 2006, with the aim of sharing best practices in policy, technology, and finance to meet the region's climate and energy security challenges. More than 830 people from 55 countries attended the 2012 Forum, which was comprised of 32 sessions and 9 side events.
 
 
In 2013, ACEF will take a fresh new approach to improve the effectiveness and outcomes of the week’s discussions. Unlike previous years, the 2013 ACEF will incorporate many of the previous side events into the main body of the Forum. This will allow for a more focused and condensed set of discussions on each of six key thematic areas: policy, finance, energy efficiency, renewable energy, energy access, and emerging technologies.
