Cleaner Energy Future Initiative for ASEAN (CEFIA) serves as a platform to facilitate collaboration between public and private sectors for accelerating the development of cleaner energy and low carbon technologies in the ASEAN region.

Secretariat: ASEAN Centre for Energy
Cooperator: Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Government of Japan
For decades, a wide variety of cooperative activities have been carried out in the energy field among 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 programs with policy design among ASEAN+3 countries through various activities, such as capacity-building programs, 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 5 September 2019. CEFIA serves as a platform to facilitate collaboration between public and private sectors in deployment of cleaner energy and low carbon technologies in the ASEAN region.
CEFIA Government-Private Forum is held on an annual basis. The 3rd CEFIA Forum will be held virtually on February 21, 2022. The Forum will be hosted by the Energy Commission of the government of Malaysia, in cooperation with the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) of the Government of Japan, with the support from the ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE). The CEFIA Forum will take place back-to-back with the 16th ASEAN+3 NRE and EE&C Forum.
At the 3rd CEFIA Forum, ASEAN+3 government officials, international organizations, universities, and private companies will gather online to share progress on activities and discuss future activities aimed at energy transition and the realization of a low-carbon society in the ASEAN region.
