The Coalition

The Asia Clean Energy Coalition (ACEC) convenes a coalition of world-leading renewable energy buyers, in collaboration with sellers and financiers, to strategically shift policy in key Asian national and regional markets.

The coalition’s vision for 2030 is that clean energy in Asia’s markets is accessible, affordable and accountable at scale, with effective procurement frameworks, regulation and investment.

ACEC was launched in 2022 at the B20 and COP27 by Climate Group, the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and the World Resources Institute (WRI).
