The 7th Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM7) took place in San Francisco on June 1st and 2nd. As a follow up to COP21, where representatives from over 190 countries came together to discuss climate change, CEM7 aimed to accelerate the global clean energy revolution. 75F was one of 100 companies from around the world selected to be part of the innovation showcase as a company leading the world’s transition to a clean energy future.
We received quite a bit of traffic during the exhibition and enjoyed our time meeting individuals who are motivated to find sustainable ways of conducting business and everyday living. The 75F predictive solution, integrated with individual temperature control and weather forecasting really connected with the audience.
Ministers from 23 countries gathered to focus on implementing policies and technologies needed to achieve the clean energy goals announced in Paris. A few of them stopped by during a private event and we even had Dr. Ernest Moniz, U.S. Secretary of Energy, stop by to learn about our booth! It was an honor and a privilege to meet him.
In the midst of all the excitement, Deepinder was interviewed by Johnathon Bloom of ABC News and our story was picked up as a part of the news coverage!
Numerous beneficial outcomes stemmed from CEM7. The global lighting challenge announces 8 billion LED lights pledged toward 10 billion goal. The clean energy ministerial launches the advanced cooling challenge, inspiring governments, companies, and stakeholders to develop and deploy at scale super-efficient, smart, climate-friendly, affordable cooling technologies that are critical for prosperous and healthy societies. An international assembly of high-level clean energy leaders has launched the Corporate Sourcing for Renewables Campaign, a collaborative drive to significantly increase the number of companies around the world powering operations with renewable energy. Energy ministers launch new campaigns on energy efficiency and renewable energy to help spur implementation of Paris commitments. Lastly, governments, companies and international partners collaborate to accelerate implementation of ISO 50001, the global energy management system standard. At 75F we are proud to see these challenges and adoptions being made and we hope to see more in the future.
