Clean Energy Mini-Grids Partnership – Members Call
Dear Clean Energy Mini-Grids Partnership (CEMG) members,
Thank you for your continued support and involvement in the CEMG Partnership. Please join us for our first membership-wide call on Wednesday, January 18, 2017 at 9am EST/2pm UK/3pm CET.
The call will be the first in a quarterly series where the CEMG Steering Committee will ask the broader membership to help direct the current and planned activities of the CEMP Partnership, and Partnership members will be given the opportunity to highlight their work.
This first call will provide members with updates regarding the services of the CEMG Partnership Secretariat and our links with SEforAll. But the main focus will be feedback from members to inform the Steering Committee of high priority issues that the Partnership can help our members to address. Future calls will then be based upon member updates on different thematic and/or geographic areas of interest. Please check your inbox for dial-in details which will be sent separately – if you do not receive these, please contact the Secretariat (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you would like to speak during this call, particularly to highlight priority areas of activity and associated needs that the CEMG Partnership can help to address, please sign-up here. We will try to accommodate as many speakers as time allows. Those of you who are unable to join the call in person but would like to provide feedback can do so in writing – please send your input to the Secretariat (email@example.com) by Monday, January 16. We will then aim to present your views during the call.
Follow along with the conversation on Twitter as we live tweet from @minigridsHIO using the hashtag: #minigridscall. You can also submit your questions for speakers via Twitter or by emailing the Secretariat.
