CEM initiatives help reduce emissions, improve energy security, provide energy access, and sustain economic growth.

A New Era of Shared Clean-Energy Leadership Begins in China

A New Era of Shared Clean-Energy Leadership Begins in China
There is a new reality in clean energy. The world’s major emerging economies – including China, India, and several others – are moving to the center stage of the clean energy transition. Christian Zinglersen, Head of the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) Secretariat, explains how the CEM is bringing together major industrialized and emerging economies to focus on clean energy technologies and policies, reduce environmental impacts, and ensure reliable and affordable supplies. The upcoming eighth Clean Energy Ministerial in Beijing reflects the key role of emerging economies in clean energy.

Approaching Energy Access Differently

Approaching Energy Access Differently
International Women’s Day, observed around the world on 8 March 2017, celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political empowerment and achievement of women. Among many other issues, International Women’s Day provides an opportunity to recognize cutting-edge work addressing women’s energy poverty. For example, in West Africa, ensuring universal energy access by 2030 is proving to be more than just a political proclamation; with support from the Clean Energy Ministerial’s Clean Energy Solutions Center and its partners, West African countries are fast-tracking their energy access goals by putting women’s interests at the center of policy solutions.
