Around the world, more and more electricity is being generated by renewable energy sources such as solar and wind. Equipment, appliances, and buildings are being designed to cut energy waste. Millions of workers are being trained, and new clean energy jobs are being created. Sales of electric vehicles are setting records. And we are seeing a positive shift in public support for prudent action to address climate change and pursue clean energy.
This progress has been facilitated in part by the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM), a voluntary and collaborative forum of energy ministers from 23 governments with the distinctive goal of accelerating the world's clean-energy transition. Actions taken by these governments through the CEM's 13 initiatives have achieved significant results.
