An opportunity to contribute to ministerial policy discussions

This workshop is your chance to influence the global agenda by contributing with your ideas and expertise. The key findings from the workshop will provide basis for a high-level panel dicussion, and be included in a policy brief distributed to participants of the Clean Energy Ministerial.

If you want to share your views and experiences on how challenges in the prevailing market rules need to be tackled in the future – this is the event for you. A draft version of the policy brief will be distributed to you before the workshop and serve as a starting point for the discussions.

We offer coffee and lunch. It is also possible to participate part of the day.

To help us think around the topics at hand we have gathered a range of great minds. See the full programme and keynote speaker details below.
