Description The Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) is a high-level global forum to promote policies and programs that advance clean energy technology, to share lessons learned and best practices, and to encourage the transition to a global clean energy economy. Initiatives are based on areas of common interest among participating governments and other stakeholders. Last update September 2015
Objectives The CEM is focused on three global climate and energy policy goals: Improve energy efficiency worldwide; Enhance clean energy supply; Expand clean energy access
Activities Our work unites 23 participating CEM countries and the European Commission in efforts to improve energy efficiency, enhance clean energy supply, and expand clean energy access. Our work takes place through three main activities: High-level policy dialogue at the annual ministerial meetings helps advance international collaboration to accelerate the adoption of clean energy policies and practices; Public-private engagement builds the industry, government and civil society cooperation needed to scale up clean energy around the globe; Year-round work through the initiatives expands the deployment of clean energy technologies, policies, and practices.

An example is that it funds the Clean Energy Solution Center which helps governments design and adopt policies and programs that support the deployment of clean energy technologies." CEM recently approved the EV30@30 campaign under the Electric Vehicles Initiative (EVI). The campaign aims to boost the e-mobility market – in terms of fleet adoption and infrastructure deployment – by setting a target of 30% EV sales by 2030. However, the target is applied collectively to the CEM-EVI members that have supported the initiative: the governments of Canada, China, Finland, France, India, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden.
