Clean Energy Ministerial 5 

12–13 May 2014, Seoul, Korea

Events on the Sidelines of the Fifth Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM5)


Energy Technology Perspectives 2014

The International Energy Agency (IEA) will present the Energy Technology Perspectives 2014 on the sidelines of the fifth Clean Energy Ministerial. 

Energy Technology Perspectives sits at the heart of the IEA’s work on energy technology and policy. It offers a comprehensive, long-term analysis of trends in the energy sector - and of the technologies that are essential to achieving an affordable, secure and low-carbon energy system.

Starting from the premise that electricity will be an increasingly important component of energy systems of the future, the 2014 edition of Energy Technology Perspectives (ETP 2014) examines in depth what must be done to provide sustainable options for generation, distribution and end-use consumption.

Since it was first published in 2006, Energy Technology Perspectives has evolved into a series that sets out pathways to a sustainable energy future in which optimal technology choices are driven by cost, energy security and environmental factors.

Energy Technology Perspectives 2014 will be presented to twice on 12 May: first at a press conference on the sidelines of the Clean Energy Ministerial meeting in Seoul, and later during a webinar. This is to enable journalists who cannot be present in Seoul to see the presentation, hear the messages and ask questions.

About 21CPP
The 21st Century Power Partnership is a multilateral effort of the Clean Energy Ministerial that aims to accelerate power system transformation. The Power Partnership serves as a platform for public-private collaboration to advance integrated policy, regulatory, financial, and technical solutions for the large-scale deployment of renewable energy in combination with deep energy efficiency and smart grid solutions. The 21CPP is unique in its emphasis on promoting systems perspective solutions on power sector transformation challenges and opportunities. 



World Bank: Catalyzing Market Transformation for Energy Efficiency in Appliances

Rapid growth in energy demand places a large burden on developing countries’ economic, environmental and social resources. Part of this demand growth is caused by inefficient appliances and equipment. The lack of minimum efficiency standards in these countries makes them prime targets for trade partners to “dump” inefficient products into their markets. In the absence of mandatory or even voluntary standards and labels, customers will continue to purchase the cheaper “first cost” products that are available without considering the longer term costs of inefficient products. Many barriers prevent the implementation of standards and labeling programs and the penetration of higher efficiency appliances into the market.

The World Bank is organizing a discussion session to gather insight from decision makers on energy efficiency policy challenges in their country: manufacturing versus importing appliances. The conversation will engage the private sector to understand their perspective as well. International actors such as SEAD, GEF along with the World Bank will discuss their role in facilitating a tangible and customized solution.
