U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz this week (Jan. 26) visited San Francisco and announced details of the seventh Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM7), which will be hosted by the United States on June 1-2 and which the Bay Area Council is honored to be helping organize. During a talk at the Commonwealth Club on Tuesday (Jan. 26), Sec. Moniz said CEM7 will play a critical role in helping to implement the clean energy goals that are part of the climate commitments put forward by countries at COP21.
The Clean Energy Ministerial is a historic global forum of the energy ministers of Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, the European Commission, Finland, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Norway, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The upcoming CEM7 will emphasize the critical role of the private sector in technology investment, development and deployment, and policy guidance, and will be part of a broader “Clean Energy Week” and will include a series of public private events and announcements.
