Deep Dive Workshops (DDWs): ACEF 2019 will feature several Deep Dive Workshops on Monday 17 June, Wednesday 19 June, and Friday 21 June. Each DDW is organized by one or more ACEF partner organizations and will provide participants with an opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge of specific topics of interest.

Knowledge Networking Sessions: This year ACEF will offer participants two different knowledge networking sessions. They are "ADB on the Ground" (Wednesday 19 June) and "Dim Sum with Clean Energy Entrepreneurs" (Thursday 20 June).

Plenaries: ACEF 2019 will bring three thought provoking plenaries that will include keynote speakers who will discuss a low carbon future, financing the pathway for clean energy and overall sustainable impact.

Thematic Track Sessions: Each track will include five 90-minute sessions, each with either a series of short presentations or panel discussion followed by a facilitated Q&A session. Each track will also feature a session that discusses cutting-edge innovations within the particular track topic.

These sessions will be organized into five thematic tracks:

  • Energy & Livable Cities
  • Energy & Water Sustainability
  • Energy & Rural Poverty Alleviation
  • Energy & Innovative Finance
  • Clean Energy Trends & Directions
