Clean Energy Forum (CEF): International Advisory Board is constituted

On March 15, 2024, the International Advisory Board of the Clean Energy Forum (CEF) Foundation will be constituted. The International Advisory Board is made up of 19 recognized and experienced leaders from the international energy industry, politics and science, who come from various European countries, the United States, Bolivia, Brazil, Egypt and India. Their broad and diverse expertise enables the Clean Energy Forum to take a truly transnational approach to climate policy in order to identify international best practices and draw attention to them in Germany. The Inter- national Advisory Board's main task will be to raise awareness of the fact that climate policy should not be shaped in a Eurocentric or even national way, but that its global dimension must be given greater consideration.

Chairman of the International Advisory Board is Iain Conn. Iain Conn has worked in leading positions in the energy sector for 38 years. From 2015 to 2020 he was CEO of Centrica. From 2007 to 2014 he was CEO Downstream on the Executive Board of bp. Iain Conn is currently a Senior Advisor to Blackstone.
