In partnership with the Danish Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate and the Confederation of Danish Industries, World Climate Ltd co-organised today the Clean Energy Investment Forum (CEIF) in Copenhagen with more than 200 high-level decision makers and experts attending the event.
The CEIF was an official side event to the ninth Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM9), an event which will gather energy ministers from the world’s largest economies to meet on May 24th in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The program convened globally recognised clean energy leaders, with discussions focused around bolstering public and private collaboration, accelerating investments at the national and global level, addressing barriers encountered by project developers, and advancing policies for scaling up clean energy investment in CEM countries.
Denmark announced a dedicated Clean Energy Ministerial Initiative on Clean Energy Investment and Finance, in connection with leading energy ministers meeting to drive a global, clean energy transition.
“This new initiative on Clean Energy Investment and Finance will help speed up innovation and deployment of clean energy, building on the experience of Denmark and other countries,” said Jens Nielsen, CEO of World Climate Ltd. “We are proud to be partnering with the Danish Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate to do our part in ensuring its launch and future success.”
A dozen international bodies, including the European Investment Bank, International Energy Agency, International Renewable Energy Agency, OECD, United Nations Development Program and the World Bank, expressed their support for the initiative, and a joint Partnership Declaration/Communiqué was released at the Forum.
Key recommendations and outcomes from the CEIF will be communicated directly to the CEM9 ministerial on May 24th.
