For its 4th edition in a hybrid format, PowerACE 2021 received more than 60 entries from over 21 countries. From the pool of applicants, twelve finalists were chosen and given a month-long mentorship opportunity with some of the most established financers and leaders in the sustainable energy industry, as well as the chance to win over $100,000 worth of prizes from our sponsors EcoLabs, Center of Innovation for Energy and BloombergNEF and Private Financing Advisory Network (PFAN).
On October 27th, the top 12 finalists competed at the Asia Clean Energy Summit 2021, presenting their innovations and solutions across five key themes to a panel of distinguished judges from EcoLabs Center of Innovation for Energy, BloombergNEF and Private Financing Advisory Network (PFAN).
The PowerACE virtual platform, which was viewed by over 200 attendees from all over the world, also allowed the finalists to network with like-minded business leaders and investors, as well as share their innovations and solutions for transforming the energy ecosystem.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our supporting and partner organisations, as well as all participating start-ups for yet another exciting PowerACE edition.
