So the power comes almost exclusively from your racket arm. It's a shortened swing. To get enough power for a good clear, you need good timing and grip tightening -- the movement must be sharp and snappy.
Unlike "normal" forehands, you will finish this stroke with your body still side-on (racket side behind non-racket side).

Think of it as problem solving: how can you play a smash/clear/drop when the shuttlecock is behind you? Spend a little time on court trying to work out how to do it.
Eventually, of course, I want to write an article on this. It's quite a hard one to teach, because the players need to develop really good racket arm timing and cannot rely on large body movements to compensate.
