Clean Energy Solutions Center

From Open Energy Information

The Clean Energy Solutions Center helps governments turn clean energy visions into reality. We share policy best practices, data, and analysis tools across countries, and serve as a first-stop clearinghouse of clean energy resources. We also offer training, “live” expert assistance, and peer-to-peer learning to help countries tailor solutions to their needs and foster international collaboration on policy innovations.

The Clean Energy Solutions Center was designed and is supported by a unique partnership between the Clean Energy Ministerial and the United Nations inter-agency energy mechanism (UN-Energy).

We work in close partnership with the governments of Australia, France, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, South Africa, Sweden, United Arab Emirates, and the United States, as well as the International Energy Agency and ClimateWorks.
