  Through the 3-Day Event, it disseminated and scaled-up this science-based collaboration framework, and also demonstrated and provided practices of the smart power management system software to enhance and expand the existing collaborative framework which the self-fund project has already built up among the academia, research institutes, and private sectors. It also built capacity for the bio-based smart power grid and bio-economy issues, and strengthened the connectivity and cooperation among APEC economies to strongly build up green growth and sustainable environment in the APEC regions.
