Tracey Crowe, CEM Secretariat

A collaborative approach is absolutely critical to realizing the ambitious and comprehensive agreement reached at COP21 in Paris last year. With the energy sector worldwide representing two-thirds of global greenhouse gas emissions, it is clear that one of the most essential solutions to climate change is a global transformation to clean energy. As clean energy, and energy efficiency in particular, plays a critical role in addressing climate change, so does the Clean Energy Ministerial — the CEM. 

The role of energy efficiency in meeting energy access goals

The role of energy efficiency in meeting energy access goals

Rose Mutiso, U.S. Global LEAP lead

Energy efficiency is a critically important component of global efforts to provide access to modern energy services to the billion plus people worldwide who currently lack access to electricity. Basic energy services such as lighting and phone charging are an important first rung in the energy access ladder, but the broader socio-economic benefits of electricity access require higher levels of energy services. High-quality, super-efficient off-grid appliances require less energy and reduce the size of the off-grid energy systems needed to run them. Global LEAP partners are working to support thriving commercial markets for off-grid appliances and equipment.
