3rd JODI Data User Seminar

11 June 2019

Tokyo, Japan

The Third JODI Data-User Seminar will be held at Hotel Sunroute Ariake, Tokyo, Japan, on Tuesday 11th June 2019 at 18:30 to 21:00 with support of the JODI Partner Organisations (APEC, Eurostat, GECF, IEA, IEF, OLADE, OPEC and UNSD). 

The seminar series was initially created in response to the requests of the JODI user-community for outreach in providing a clear picture of the benefits of the Initiative’s cooperation mechanism among national administrations, JODI Partners and data users. The Tokyo seminar will be built on the experience gained in previous JODI Information Seminar series held in Kiev, New Delhi, Santa Cruz de la Sierra, London and Geneva. Participants will have a unique opportunity to hear from and exchange views with technical experts from JODI partner organisations in an interactive environment. To ensure a dynamic exchange of ideas, places will be limited to around 50 JODI data-users and technical experts.

The Seminar will be held concurrently with Joint APEC-JODI Workshop on Oil and Gas Statistics on 11-13 June 2019 designed for officials from national administrations in charge of energy data compilation and dissemination in Asian Pacific region. With this combination, the seminar will provide ample opportunities to benefit the energy data provider-consumer dialogue.

The event will address the following topics:

  • JODI History to Present: Importance of Energy Data Transparency
  • JODI data Collection and Processing: Key features that differentiate JODI from Other Data Sources
  • JODI Data for Market Research: Better Data - Better Decisions
  • JODI Participation Assessments and key features of the JODI World Database
  • Roundtable discussion on “Potential for enhanced energy data / market transparency through improved communication among data suppliers and users"

The idea of a data-user focused seminar was  inspired by heads of JODI Partner Organisations who met in Moscow prior to the 14th International Energy Forum Ministerial meeting in May 2014. Building on this discussion, JODI partners throughout consultation with key government stakeholders and the JODI data user community developed the JODI 5-Year Action Plan that encompasses development of this seminar series. The JODI User Seminar series is in line with key actions stated in the JODI 5-Year Action Plan which calls for raising awareness of the JODI platform and database.
