Energy ministers from around the world are to gather in Britain to discuss how to speed up the adoption of renewable energy systems, which could help people get clean, cheap electricity.
Representatives from 23 different countries are heading to London this week to discuss issues such as generating and making more extensive use of green electricity.
Solar power will be high on the agenda, as will bio-energy, hydropower, smart grids and carbon capture and storage.
Encouraging the take-up of electric vehicles across the UK will also be discussed.
Among the countries taking part in the talks are France, Germany, Italy and Spain.
Representatives of non-European nations such as the United Arab Emirates, the US, Australia, Brazil and Japan will also be attending.
The talks will commence on April 25th and run for two days.
This comes shortly after Friends of the Earth urged prime minister David Cameron to do more to support UK-based clean energy suppliers in order to facilitate a move away from fossil fuels.
