council prepares to host world’s top energy ministers

The Bay Area Council this week was in the final stages of preparations for welcoming 23 of the world’s top energy ministers, including U.S. Energy Sec. Ernest Moniz, to San Francisco on June 1-2 as they meet to begin working on implementation of the Paris climate agreement. The Clean Energy Ministerial marks the first direct follow up meeting since the COP21 agreement. The Council is working with the U.S. Department of Energy to organize the conference. The selection of the Bay Area for this important convening highlights the region’s global leadership in developing the science, innovation and technologies that will help the world achieve the ambitious climate change goals in COP21. San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee and Gov. Jerry Brown are scheduled to participate. Learn more about CEM7>>
