Making a difference

For emerging economies, clean energy has the potential to boost energy security and reduce reliance on fossil fuels. But, investment is critical to financing the energy transition.

In 2022, the World Economic Forum established a working group with Accenture, Kamar Dagang dan Industri Indonesia KADIN, and RE100 to unlock capital for clean energy investments in Indonesia. Members of this group included local firms such as Pertamina (Persero) and PT Jababeka Infrastruktur, as well as international companies such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Meta.

It's since created an accelerator programme that's raised the profile of six clean energy projects. You can find out more here.
