CEM campaigns are short-term efforts to raise ambition, increase visibility, and target resources to initiative work and topic areas that have particular potential for impact. The CEM campaigns seek to catalyze public and private actions towards ambitious but realistic targets.
At the eighth Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM8), new campaigns were launched in two clean energy areas – advanced power plant flexibility and electric mobility. At the seventh Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM7), new campaigns were launched in three clean energy areas – the corporate sourcing of renewables, super-efficient and climate friendly cooling technologies, and commercial and industrial energy efficiency. Three campaigns launched at the sixth Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM6) focused on efficient lighting, low-carbon power systems, and policy assistance for low-carbon development.
