The 5th Government-Private Forum on the Cleaner Energy Future Initiative for ASEAN (CEFIA)

Date : 25 August 2023

Location : Kintamani 2
The 5th Government-Private Forum on the Cleaner Energy Future Initiative for ASEAN (CEFIA)

For decades, a wide variety of co-operative activities have been carried out in the energy field amongst ASEAN+3 (China, Japan and Korea) countries. Such activities have resulted in making significant contributions to enhancing energy efficiency and facilitating energy transitions. To further promote such efforts broadly in the ASEAN region, it is becoming increasingly important to deepen the knowledge, facilitate information exchange, and develop projects and programmes with policy design amongst ASEAN+3 countries through various activities, such as capacity-building programmes, international conferences and workshops, and joint feasibility studies and demonstration projects.

To achieve this, a new initiative named “Cleaner Energy Future Initiative for ASEAN” or “CEFIA” was proposed by Japan and welcomed by the ASEAN+3 Ministers on Energy at the 16th ASEAN+3 Meeting of Energy Ministers in Bangkok, Thailand on 5th September 2019. CEFIA serves as a platform to facilitate collaboration between public and private sectors in deployment of cleaner energy and decarbonisation technologies in the ASEAN region.

Under CEFIA, several Flagship Projects are undergoing. Flagship Projects are decarbonising projects implemented by private companies and organisations whose purpose is to showcase best practises of co-operation in technology deployment, in parallel with developing appropriate policy and institutional frameworks and mobilising public and private funding (governments, private sector and academia)

This year, the 5th CEFIA Forum will be held as part of the ASEAN Energy Business Forum (AEBF) 2023 Programmes, held in Nusa Dua, Bali, Indonesia. The CEFIA Forum will be hosted by the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources of Indonesia, in co-operation with the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) of the Government of Japan, with the support from the ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE). At the 5th CEFIA Forum, ASEAN+3 government officials, international organisations, universities, and private companies will gather to share progress on activities and discuss future activities aimed at energy transition towards a decarbonised energy system in the ASEAN region. A Business Matching Event will also be conducted under arrangement with the Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO).
