Foundation-funded and non-profit, we at Clean Energy Wire CLEW want to make a difference with top-quality journalism on the energy transition and climate policy in Germany and beyond. Since our start in 2014, we have provided hundreds of journalists across the globe with facts, context and contacts to cover one of the defining stories of our time. Nearly 200 journalists from all continents have signed up to our CLEW Journalism Network and hundreds more are affiliated through joint events, cooperation and partner networks. They share a drive to inform the public about the energy transition and climate crisis – stories that are not defined by national borders. We want to enable these passionate journalists to collaborate on stories with their colleagues around the globe.
