Accelerating the Global Clean Energy Transition (San Francisco, CA) EcoSalonTuesday, May 31, 2016 (5:00 PM - 7:00 PM Pacific)
E2 and The Climate Registry (TCR) would like to invite their members and participants of the Subnational-Clean Energy Ministerial to a special event, “Accelerating the Global Clean Energy Transition,” on May 31st in San Francisco.
Speakers include: Robert B. Weisenmiller, Chair, California Energy Commission; Lynn M. Orr, Under Secretary for Science and Energy, Department of Energy; and David Rosenheim, Executive Director, The Climate Registry.
The event will provide an opportunity to learn more about two critical meetings on energy that are happening in San Francisco on June 1-2: The Seventh Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM7), which is an annual forum of the Energy ministers from 23 participating countries and the European Commission to come together to assess progress and guide work under the concrete and transformative clean energy initiatives; and the The Subnational-Clean Energy Ministerial (Sub-CEM), which will involve participants from states, regions, provinces, and cities that have or are interested in signing/endorsing the Under 2 MOU.
This year’s CEM (CEM7) is a key step after the Paris U.N. Convention of Parties climate change talks, and will focus on the policies and technologies needed to implement the commitments made in Paris. Join us for this special preview event in which we discuss the best path forward to accelerating the global clean energy transition and meet the people who are helping us make that transition.
Please contact Victoria Brinkerhoff for more information.
