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. The CEM is focused on three global climate and energy policy goals:

•Improve energy efficiency worldwide •Enhance clean energy supply •Expand clean energy access

Objectives Overarching goal is to deploy 10 billion high-efficiency bulbs. Other objectives are: Increasing energy savings – implies a focus on efficiency and stringent criteria for defining efficiency and quality, as well as tracking (technical focus);

Accelerating deployment of advanced lighting – implies a focus on number of products and maximizing number of commitments (focus on messaging, outreach, and promotion strategies); Expanding modern lighting access.

One or two success stories achieved More than eight billion LED lighting products pledged toward the 10 billion goal through a public-private volunteer coalition of more than 40 governments, manufacturers, retailers, and expert groups working together.


On 3 May, Minister Ibrahim Baylan launched Belysningsutmaningen, Sweden’s commitment to the Global Lighting Challenge. Together with public and private actors, the Swedish government now races to reduce by half the electricity demand for lighting by 2020 and challenges other countries to follow suit. http://cleanenergyministerial.org/Blog/sweden-challenges-other-countries-to-join-the-global-lighting-challenge-64446

Goals The Global Lighting Challenge is a race to reach cumulative global sales of 10 billion high- efficiency, high-quality, and affordable advanced lighting products, such as light-emitting diode (LED) lamps.

Encourage commitments to the global transition of LED lighting from both public and private sector entities according to the GLC’s guiding principles. The GLC platform acts as a way to highlight leaders of this transition and inspire others to make commitments.
