CEM15/MI-9 Ministerial Meeting in Foz do Iguacu, Brazil

On September 30th to October 4th 2024, Brazil will host one of the year's largest clean energy event, convening the Clean Energy Ministerial and Mission Innovation communities with the G20 Energy Ministers to put forward an action-focused agenda to accelerate the global clean energy transition.

Why is this important?

Energy systems are undergoing the fastest and most far-reaching transformation in history, but the pace and direction of change are not necessarily aligned with global ambitions for just and inclusive transitions to net-zero. International collaboration is key to build the coalitions needed to enable an inclusive, whole-of-society approach to address all aspects of the clean energy transition, from research, development and demonstration all the way to mass-market deployment. In addition, global cooperation amongst all stakeholders, from governments and companies to consumers and citizens, is key to ensure a fair and inclusive sharing of the economic opportunities associated with the nascent clean energy industrial age.

Recognising that this is the decade of action, and that action needs to be guided by strong political momentum, the 2024 Brazilian G20 Presidency is using the coalition-building power of the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) and Mission Innovation (MI) to convene clean energy experts from public and private sectors, academia, innovators and civil society institutions to gather in Foz do Iguaçu from 30 September to 4 October 2024 to demonstrate concrete clean energy actions in support of the G20 Energy Transition Agenda. This unique moment will bring together Ministers and senior officials from around the world, representing over 80% of global clean energy investments and the majority of public clean energy R&D spending, together with C-suite executives and heads of international organisations to agree on concrete steps to make clean energy affordable, attractive and accessible for all and accelerate clean energy transitions around the world.
