Danish Business Pavilion at CEM10

Confederation of Danish Industry, the Danish Consulate General in Toronto and State of Green are planning a Danish shared pavilion at the CEM10 meeting in Canada and this is your chance to join!

CLEAN ENERGY MINISTERIAL (CEM)

The Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) is a high-level global forum of ministers within the energy sector, who meet once a year to discuss and promote policies advancing clean energy technologies. The forum is focused on three global energy policy goals: 

  • Improve energy efficiency worldwide
  • Enhance clean energy supply
  • Expand clean energy access

CEM consists of 24 countries and the EU, who together account for 90% of all investment in clean energy in the world and 75% of global GHG emissions. CEM focuses on practical co-operation, the exchange of good ideas and experiences within green solutions and the involvement of the private sector.  The last 3 years alongside the CEM meetings, the Mission Innovation (MI) has been held. The Mission Innovation is a global initiative working to accelerate clean energy innovation and achieve cost reductions to achieve cheap and reliable energy.

This year the 10th Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM10) and 4th Mission Innovation (MI4) will be hosted by Canada in Vancouver, British Columbia. Co-located, CEM and MI bring together energy ministers and other high-level delegates from the 24 member countries and the European Union, and provide a robust stage to accelerate global clean energy innovation and uptake.

  • DATES: CEM10 and MI4 will take place 27-29 May, 2019
  • HIGH-LEVEL PARTICIPATION: Ministers for Energy and Climate from the member countries and EU are expected to participate
  • LOCATION: Vancouver, Canada
  • AUDIENCE: The event is expected to be attended by Ministers and political stakeholders, investors, corporate leaders
  • VENUE: The event will take place at Vancouver Convention Centre West

THE CANADIAN MARKET

For a long time, Canada relied on an abundance of fossil fuels to generate energy, but in the face of global climate change Canada has reoriented its energy production and energy consumption towards green solutions. Electricity demand is expected to grow by 27 percent by 2025, while it estimated that Canada will have to invest $350 billion just to maintain its existing electricity capacity. Along with the EU-Canada free trade agreement, this represents major opportunities in the Canadian market for Danish companies working in the field of clean and energy efficient energy sources.

INNOVATION SHOWCASE

This year, as part of the CEM10 and MI4, the Canadian hosts has decided to make room for the ‘Innovation Showcase’. This will be an area, where companies, start-ups and organisations can exhibit and showcase the energy technologies they have to offer. The exhibition space is designed around four key clusters; Energy efficiency, clean power and electricity, emissions reduction and clean fuels. The Danish pavilion will be located at the Innovation showcase to exhibit and share Danish green energy solutions to an international and political audience. The pavilion will be a 60m2 shared area showcasing Danish companies within the green tech sector.

CONCEPT

From the organising team we hope to gather a team of Danish companies to join us at the CEM10 and MI4 meetings. We will organise the presence through a Danish shared pavilion, where we can showcase the innovative energy technologies Danish companies have to offer. As the vast majority of visitors to the exhibition area is expected to be conference delegates, policy advisors, business representatives, international media, NGO’s and lobbyists, the Danish pavilion will focus on sustainable solutions to global climate challenges.

WHY PARTICIPATE?

The companies can display their competencies and solutions to the global climate challenges. As an exhibitor on the Danish pavilion, each company is offered a number of opportunities for exposure of the company brand and solutions. Furthermore, the pavilion serves as a platform to participate in the important dialogue between all relevant stakeholders present at the CEM10 and MI4 meetings.  The pavilion will be the centre of the Danish presence, and with the innovation showcase being co-located with the official meetings, it is the ideal place for both B2B and B2G activities.
