The ninth Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM9) meeting will be jointly hosted in Copenhagen by Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, the Nordic Council of Ministers, and the European Commission. This year, the CEM will feature discussions on Energy Integration and Transition: towards a competitive and innovative low carbon economy.
The CEM meetings provide an extraordinary opportunity for energy policy makers to inspire, create engagement, and build momentum towards their common goal of accelerating the clean energy transition.
Several events alongside CEM 9 will focus on energy end-use in industry, transportation and buildings, as well as efficient cooling and lighting (more information on these below). Ministers and policymakers will discuss opportunities to reduce energy intensity in two high level round-tables on “Decarbonization of Industry” and “Transition Towards Sustainable Buildings”. The third Mission Innovation Ministerial meeting will also take place in Malmö and will focus on scaling up R&D for new technologies of the future.
SEAD-related CEM Side-Events
Delivering Sustainable Cooling in a Warming World
24 May 10:30-12:00
Cooling in buildings is a fast growing global sector, bringing great benefits in terms of comfort, well-being and productivity. More people live in hotter regions today, and the energy used for space cooling is growing rapidly. Strong policies and action are needed to address future global cooling demands and external costs.
This panel discussion will draw attention to the importance of sustainable cooling, highlighting new actions and commitments to drive sustainable and equitable access to the benefits of cooling globally, as well as the new IEA report, "The Future of Cooling".
This side-event is hosted by Mexico, with support from China, the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the Kigali Cooling Efficiency Program (K-CEP).

From Global to Local Lighting Challenge
24 May 14:00-15:00
Sweden has taken up the Global Lighting Challenge by tackling energy efficient lighting at the national level. The Swedish Lighting Challenge has given actors inspiration and spread knowledge on new products, possibilities, and development across the country.
This event will explore the possibilities in high-quality energy efficient lighting products and the greater potential impacts leveraged through public-private partnerships. Panelists, including industry and SEAD member governments, will share their successes from the Global and Swedish campaigns and discuss opportunities to continue the progress to energy efficiency.
Look out for a special announcement on the Global Lighting Challenge!
