IIASA Deputy Director General Prof. Dr. Nebojsa Nakicenovic will participate in the round table discussions on Accelerating Energy Productivity and Sustainable Urban Energy Transition at the Clean Energy Ministerial in Mexico this week.

In addition, he will take part in a side event of the Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas (ECPA) and Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) hosted by the 21st Century Power Partnership entitled Charting a Course for Power System Transformation in Latin America

About the event
The Clean Energy Ministerial is a global forum to share best practices and promote policies and programs that encourage and facilitate the transition to a global clean energy economy. CEM initiatives help reduce emissions, improve energy security, provide energy access, and sustain economic growth.

The sixth Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM6) will be hosted by the government of Mexico on 27-28 May 2015, in Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico.

Energy ministers and other high-level delegates from the 23 participating Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) governments will come together to assess progress to date and identify the critical next steps for accelerating our transition to a global clean energy economy. 

With five years of work behind the CEM, CEM6 will be a decision-making meeting to plan for how this global forum can be more effective and ambitious going forward. It will be an opportunity to demonstrate how each of the member governments can implement the key policies and strategies to help meet national clean energy goals and how the CEM can contribute to a successful outcome for the climate change negotiations in Paris in December 2015. 

CEM6 will engage the world’s most important clean energy countries and highlight the role of low-carbon energy technology solutions and policies to help countries deliver on their national clean energy goals.
