Clean Energy Ministerial Secretariat at IEA

A new, multilateral Secretariat for the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) will be established at the IEA later this year.

The CEM is a high-level forum of many of the world’s economies working together to accelerate the global transition to clean energy.

“The choice of the IEA as the home of the new CEM Secretariat is a ‘win-win’ for everyone involved,” said IEA Executive Director Fatih Birol. “In November 2015, the IEA Ministers gave us a clear mandate to strengthen the clean-energy technology and innovation-related activities of the Agency and also to ‘open our doors’ to increase our engagement with major emerging economies. As such, I am delighted that the IEA’s 29 member countries have now accepted the proposal to transition the CEM Secretariat to the IEA.” The decision follows CEM members selecting the IEA – from a short-list of other international organisations – as their preferred home for the CEM Secretariat at their recent Ministerial meeting in San Francisco on 1-2 June.
