Two high-level energy ministerial meetings, the Ninth Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM9) and the Third Mission Innovation Ministerial (MI-3), will be co-hosted by Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, the European Commission and the Nordic Council of Ministers in the cities of Copenhagen and Malmö respectively.
The Clean Energy Ministerial brings together 24 countries and the EU; it focuses on the promotion of policies and programmes that advance clean energy technologies, share lessons learned and best practices and encourage the transition to a global clean energy economy. This annual ministerial meeting is accompanied by year-round policy-targeted technical initiatives and campaigns.
Mission Innovation is a global initiative, with 22 participating countries in addition to the European Commission (on behalf of the EU), focused on accelerating clean energy innovation and boosting public research and development spending in the field of clean energy. At MI-3, energy ministers along with high level representatives of business and the research community will celebrate what has been achieved so far and initiate engagement in new areas.
The many high-level speakers include the European Commission Vice-President for the Energy Union, Maroš Šefčovič, Commissioner Miguel Arias Cañete and Commissioner Carlos Moedas. See further programme details on the CEM9/MI-3 website.
The European Commission will provide photo from sessions including the Commissioners, both on 23 and 24 May.
