Clean Energy Ministerial Releases CEM6 Roundtables Summary Report

The new report captures the ideas and recommendations of the government and private sector leaders who participated in six clean energy roundtables held as part of the sixth Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM6).

The Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) has released a new report summarizing key outcomes from the six public-private roundtables held as part of the sixth Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM6) in Mérida, Mexico, in May 2015. Public-Private Roundtables at the Sixth Clean Energy Ministerial captures the key messages and recommendations of the government and private-sector 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 stakeholders—including civil society organizations, global business leaders, entrepreneurs, experts from laboratories and academia, and leaders from civil society organizations—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 CEM6 roundtables brought knowledge, expertise, and perspective to particularly topical energy issues and challenges. High-level discussions clarified barriers to progress and identified potential solutions in each of the six topic areas:

The Clean Energy Ministerial recognizes at a fundamental level that our climate and energy challenges cannot be solved through government actions alone. The private sector is a driving force behind the clean energy revolution and brings invaluable abilities, strengths, and resources to the cause. Meeting the challenge of transitioning to a global clean energy economy requires all actors—the private sector, governments, civil society, investors, and other stakeholders—working together to leverage respective strengths and resources.
