EnergyAccessX is the parallel program of the seventh annual Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM7), focused on the critical role of clean technologies and distributed renewables in advancing universal energy access. Co-located with CEM7 in San Francisco on June 1, EnergyAccessX will gather a unique mix of entrepreneurs, thought leaders, technologists, designers and policy experts from around the world to challenge conventional wisdom and put forth a compelling new vision for achieving the global goal of universal access to modern energy services by 2030. EnergyAccessX is sponsored by the CEM’s Global LEAP initiative, UK Department for International Development, and Power for All. 

The event will feature dynamic sessions which tackle forward-looking topics, such as the intersection of energy access with emerging technology and business areas such as big data, design thinking, and energy storage for the off-grid context.
