10 Ways the Clean Energy Ministerial Is Helping Drive the World’s Clean Energy Revolution

If we’re going to solve the challenge of climate change, we need to make a rapid shift to clean energy. That’s why the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) was launched in 2010. At this year’s seventh annual Clean Energy Ministerial meeting, CEM7, energy ministers and business leaders from more than 25 countries will tackle a number of challenges, such as reaching the clean energy goals outlined in the COP21 Paris Climate Agreement. But the CEM is more than just a meeting. It’s also a collection of groundbreaking campaigns and initiatives that provide people around the world with the tools they need to join the clean energy revolution. This blog lists 10 ways that the CEM is advancing clean energy worldwide.

The Value of Energy Management Systems and ISO 50001

Companies are finding that energy management systems (EnMSs) offer a cost-effective way to save energy and avoid carbon emissions. Organizations use the global ISO 50001 standard to implement a robust, effective energy management system to improve energy performance and reduce carbon emissions.

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.
