Clean Energy Ministerial Releases CEM7 Roundtables Summary Report

CEM released a report discussing findings from the CEM7 public–private roundtable discussions.

The Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) has released a new report summarizing key outcomes from the four public–private roundtables held as part of the seventh Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM7) in San Francisco, California, United States, in June 2016. Public–Private Roundtables at the Seventh Clean Energy Ministerial captures the key messages and recommendations of the government, private-sector, and other global leaders who participated in the discussions.

The roundtables provide an opportunity for the CEM participating energy ministers and other high-level officials to engage in an open discussion with other global leaders from civil society, business, and laboratories and academia on key clean energy challenges. The discussions capture the various perspectives, inform current CEM initiative work, and encourage ongoing public–private dialogue and cooperation to accelerate clean energy progress.

The high-level discussions at CEM7 clarified barriers to progress and identified potential solutions to four topical energy issues and challenges:

The Clean Energy Ministerial recognizes at a fundamental level that our climate and energy challenges cannot be solved through government actions alone. The clean energy revolution requires partnerships and collaborations, between governments, the private sector, non-governmental organizations, and others to build technical and human capacity, to raise and direct critical funding, to strategize on game-changing policies and programs, and to implement solutions that are scalable and sustainable.
