New this year: Roundtables - World Cafe
Participants take over the proceedings…

Following feedback from our past participants, we have decided to make the event even more interactive with the inclusion of World Café sessions. 

During these 90 minutes sessions, participants will be able to interact in small groups (max 10-15 participants) with industry experts and dive deep into specific issues related to the main conference themes (Clean Power Policy, Financing & Regulation; Renewables Integration and Storage; Metering; Revenue Assurance; Customer Engagement; Transmission & Distribution Grid Asset Management; Communications Infrastructures; Data Management).

Who’s going to give India $500m for world’s largest solar project? The Indian government is hoping to secure a loan worth $500 million from the World Bank to kick off construction of what would be the largest solar power plant in the world near Sambhar lake in Rajasthan.

Clean Power Asia + Asian Utility Week = Your platform to a smart and clean energy world!
Alongside the traditional policy, regulation, financing and project development sessions, this year Clean Power Asia will have a greater focus on renewables integration and storage. 
 
With several renewable energy projects coming on-line across Asia, utilities are faced with the challenge of integrating (intermittent) renewables into ageing grids. It was thus clear that a platform was needed for T&D utilities to meet generators and discuss these and other important issues of common interest.
