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.

Achieving the Three C’s of Measuring and Reporting Energy Efficiency Improvements: Certainty, Credibility, and Consistency

Achieving the Three C’s of Measuring and Reporting Energy Efficiency Improvements: Certainty, Credibility, and Consistency

Because energy savings represent the absence of energy use, it is impossible to directly measure energy efficiency impacts; the credibility of the reported data is only as sound as the measurement and verification (M&V) processes, methodologies, and data that are used. Using the three C’s—Certainty, Credibility, and Consistency—builds confidence in the M&V processes, methodologies, and protocols, and thus in the reported results. 

Building a Global Low-Carbon Technology Pathway

Building a Global Low-Carbon Technology Pathway
At the 20th Conference of the Parties (COP20) in Lima, Peru, a live panel discussion highlighted CEM’s solid record of achievement in accelerating the transition to clean energy. It also focused on how the CEM can contribute to a successful outcome in the 2015 Paris climate negotiations and the role the CEM can play in the implementation of actions and policies to help countries meet their energy-related contributions in a new climate agreement.

Motors are everywhere and efficient – but they can be even better

Motors are everywhere and efficient – but they can be even better

Material and technological breakthroughs are improving the energy efficiencies of induction and other electric motors by changing how motors work and are controlled. Continued international collaboration and open dialogue, such as that carried out through the SEAD initiative, will help to further shrink motors’ share of energy consumption over the years to come.
