Sustainable Growth the Nordic Way
WEB MAGAZINE - February 2018
International energy week in the Öresund region in May
The Nordic Council of Ministers will be co-hosting the events, together with the five Nordic countries and the EU. Ministerial meetings during CEM9 and MI3 will be held on 23 and 24 May in Copenhagen and Malmö, and the Nordic energy ministers will be holding their own meeting on 22 May in Lund.
In conjunction with the ministerial meeting, Nordic Clean Energy Week will be held, where the focus will be on the green transition. Throughout the week, a series of conferences will be arranged, involving key actors from the energy sector, including energy ministers, representatives of the business sector, research, civil society, and international organisations.
CEM is an international co-operation, comprising 24 nations and the EU. They account for 90 percent of all investment in clean energy in the world and 75 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions.
MI consists of 22 nations and the EU. It focuses on strengthening the research within clean energy technology. The Nordic countries and the other participating nations have pledged to double their public spending on research into clean energy technology by 2020.
Last year, China hosted CEM and MI.
