The E15 Expert Group on Clean Energy Technologies and the Trade System met for the first time in Geneva on 5-6 June 2013 to begin discussions exploring options to strengthen the multilateral trading system in the area of clean energy. The workshop began with a scene-seyting presentation by the Theme Leader Ricardo Meléndez-Ortiz (ICTSD), and the author of the background paper, Mahesh Sugathan (ICTSD). Experts then divided into small groups and discussed the following topics: (i) market access in the area of renewable energy, (ii) rules, and (iii) transitory measures.
