The International Forum for Clean Energy (Macao) is an international nonprofit organization with the aim of building a global clean-energy network that connects a wide range of key actors from government, industry, science and academia, to facilitate knowledge exchange, technical cooperation, and joint action towards a rapid global transition to the low-carbon society of sustainable energy.
The organization focuses on researching policies, supporting research, promoting investment and expanding markets for clean energy to enhance both the innovative power of clean energy technology and industry competitiveness.
The IFCE was established in April 2012 after joint advocacy by representatives from the Chinese mainland, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macao, and Brazil, Russia, India, Angola, Portugal, South Korea, and Malaysia. It receives strong support from the government of the Macao Special Administrative Region.
