Clean energy ministerial conference London

Energy ministers from 23 of the world's leading economies will meet in London from 25-27 April, to work together on accelerating the transition to clean energy technologies.

The discussions will take place as part of the third Clean Energy Ministerial conference (CEM3) – an annual meeting of energy ministers from major economies including the U.S., the UK, India and Korea. Outcomes from the meeting will feed into the United Nations summit on sustainable development, the Rio +20 summit, in June.

Energy ministers attending the CEM3 event will work on enhancing collaboration between countries to develop clean energy technologies which will aid global efforts to reduce emissions and improve energy security.

Throughout the week a series of announcements will be made on collaborations between countries, new investment and jobs, in areas including energy efficiency, carbon capture and storage, solar, wind and entrepreneurialism.

Steven Chu, U.S. energy secretary will co-chair the event with UK Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change Edward Davey.
