On 18–21 May 2015 over 1,500 top figures from government, business, international organizations and civil society, including more than 30 Energy and Finance Ministers from across the globe, gathered in New York for the 2nd annual Sustainable Energy for All Forum under the overall theme of “Financing Sustainable Energy for All”.

Held partly in the Sheraton Hotel and partly in the UN's iconic General Assembly Hall, the Forum featured the first ever Global Energy Ministerial. It included more than 70 solutions-oriented, high-level sessions focused on reporting and assessing progress towards sustainable energy for all, mobilizing further actions, partnerships and commitments, sharing best practices and showcasing innovation. It continued to build further momentum in support of the UN Decade of Sustainable Energy for All 2014-2024, and saw the launch of a global campaign on Energy for Women and Children’s Health.

The emphasis was on showcasing concrete, substantial outcomes, including the launch of the SE4All's Annual Report for 2014 and scores of commitments announced by partners working towards the three Sustainable Energy for All targets. The Forum also hosted the launch of the second edition of the biennial SE4All Global Tracking Framework, which measures progress towards those targets.

The Forum helped to shape the direction of the global energy dialogue and will act as a catalyst for vital investment in the crucial decades to come. Its success reaffirmed that a grand coalition of SE4All partners from around the world and across society stands ready to help implement the outcomes of the UN Conference on Financing for Development in July, the adoption of the post-2015 development agenda in September and the UN Climate Conference (COP 21) in December.
