Technical and policy work takes place year-round in the Clean Energy Ministerial through action-driven, transformative clean energy initiatives led by like-minded governments. The initiatives focus on empowering energy decision makers with the information and tools they need to improve the policy environment for clean energy around the world. The initiatives’ low-cost, high-impact work also facilitates international coordination that amplifies each government’s clean energy deployment efforts.
The initiatives work to achieve three key goals: improve energy efficiency, enhance clean energy supply, and expand clean energy access. Progress in these areas can help nations reduce carbon emissions, improve energy security, and sustain economic growth.
The initiatives are grouped into four theme areas:
- Energy Demand – Initiatives that are helping countries and industries increase energy efficiency, increase energy productivity, and effectively manage energy demand
- Energy Supply – Initiatives that are accelerating deployment of clean energy supply technologies, such as solar and wind
- Energy Systems and Integration – Initiatives that are accelerating the pace of decarbonization in global power systems while extending energy access
Crosscutting Support – Initiatives that are advancing workforce diversity and building policy expertise to support a more rapid transition to clean energy
