    “I am looking forward to discussions, in Sweden, with the world’s energy ministers and decision-makers on how to take joint responsibility for developing the sustainable energy solutions of tomorrow. The meetings will also provide fantastic opportunities to market Nordic energy technology expertise,” says Minister for Policy Coordination and Energy Ibrahim Baylan, who will represent Sweden and lead parts of the meetings.

Clean Energy Ministerial and Mission Innovation

The Clean Energy Ministerial and the Mission Innovation Ministerial bring together a group of countries that account for 75 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions and 90 per cent of the investments in clean energy. Initiatives aim to strengthen experience exchanges and legislative cooperation that can help accelerate the transition to clean energy.

The CEM aims to accelerate the global rate of energy efficiency improvement and increase the volume and accessibility of sustainable energy. Sweden has been an active participant since the forum began in 2010.

The MI aims to rapidly accelerate the pace of cleantech innovation Sweden has been an active participant since the outset in 2015.

  • Nordic Clean Energy Week

    In addition to the official events linked to the ministerial meetings, many other activities will take place in the Öresund region as part of Nordic Clean Energy Week. Sweden’s ambition is to find a common theme between the ministerial discussions and the side events taking place during the week.

    Nordic Clean Energy Week will take place in part at Malmö Live in central Malmö. Meeting places, where stakeholders can take part and contribute to the week, will also be organised in other parts of the region.

    Priority areas for Sweden’s part of the week are the transition to a digital and sustainable energy supply, sustainable solutions for the transport sector, sustainable cities, smart industry and green financing.

    Sweden’s part of Nordic Clean Energy Week is being organised by Region Skåne and The city of Malmö, supported by the Ministry of the Environment and Energy and the Swedish Energy Agency.
