MI-8 Ministerial

19 – 22 July, 2023 | Goa, India

Hosted by the Indian Ministry of Power and Department of Science and Technology


The 8th Mission Innovation Ministerial and 14th Clean Energy Ministerial, hosted by the Government of India, took place alongside the G20 in Goa, India. The alignment with G20 put clean energy innovation in the political spotlight and boosted the momentum of Mission Innovation’s initiatives. At the four-day event, Ministers, CEOs, academics, innovators and civil society participated in a high-level plenary, public-private roundtables and high-level dialogues, side events and a technology showcase.

Mission Innovation members showcased the progress of the Mission Innovation Missions and Innovation Platform initiatives. The seven MI ‘Missions’ provide the mechanism to drive international collaboration and coordination, allowing governments to work together and with the private sector to target investment and action. The Missions are two years into the delivery of their ambitious 10-year action plans to achieve tipping points in the cost and scale of clean energy solutions. Mission members announced their inspiring plans for the year ahead.

Members announced strengthened engagement with the Clean Energy Transition Partnership. This will provide a mechanism for MI members, Missions and Innovation Communities to implement collaborative funding programmes, a key element in galvanising the collaboration required to achieve Mission Innovation’s goal of making clean energy affordable, attractive and accessible for all.

To improve the efficiency of the RD&D cycle, members will deliver a programme of workshops and events through the MI Think Tank. It will foster knowledge sharing and the exchange of best-practices between members of the MI community and beyond on cross-cutting issues.

Members reaffirmed their commitment to sustained and strengthened cooperation across sectors and key technologies as they work to accelerate the clean energy revolution and called on others to join them.
