Changing the climate, together: World leaders unite to accelerate the clean energy revolution
More than 20 countries from six continents met recently at the sixth Clean Energy Ministerial, or CEM, in Merida, Mexico and discussed a path forward to accelerate a global clean energy revolution that is already underway. Underpinning this revolution are technology innovation and increasing market share that combine to drive down clean energy costs.
