ACEC welcomes Suji Kang as Program Director of the coalition
Asia Clean Energy Coalition (ACEC) is pleased to announce the appointment of Suji Kang as the coalition’s first ever Program Director.
A leading expert in the renewable electricity industry with a track record in the public-, private-, and non-profit environment sectors, Suji brings a wealth of industry experience to the coalition as it drives forward its work in the Asia Pacific region.
Suji will lead ACEC, working closely with the coalition’s founding members and key external stakeholders, to rapidly scale-up the coalition’s work across Asia Pacific. The existing power systems of the region are heavily reliant on fossil fuels – ACEC’s vision for 2030 is that clean energy is accessible, affordable and accountable at scale, with effective procurement frameworks, regulation and investment.
“I am delighted to join ACEC – The challenges we face with corporate clean energy procurement in Asia Pacific require a unified voice to overcome. We must drive forward policy change and market reforms. With the support ACEC receives from its influential members, we will work to unleash the renewable energy procurement potential of the region and I look forward to leading ACEC as a platform that strives towards this goal,” said Suji Kang, Program Director, Asia Clean Energy Coalition.
Established at the B20 and COP27 in November 2022, ACEC’s focus is on improving the policy and regulatory environments for clean energy, in both national and regional Asian markets. ACEC was launched by Climate Group, the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and the World Resources Institute (WRI). Founding members of ACEC include Amazon, Apple, Cisco, Enel Green Power, Google, Iberdrola, Ingka Group (Largest IKEA franchisee), Mainstream Renewable Power, Meta, Nike, Ørsted, Samsung Electronics and Sembcorp.
“We’re delighted that Suji will lead ACEC as the coalition’s first ever Program Director. For countries in the Asia Pacific region to meet their decarbonisation goals, we must unlock cost-effective, efficient corporate sourcing of renewable electricity. We look forward to ACEC accelerating towards this ambition, bringing together clean energy buyers, project developers, financiers, policymakers, utilities, and energy regulators to drive much-needed policy change in the region,” said Ollie Wilson, Head of RE100, Climate Group.
