The International Energy Forum (IEF) participated in the Second G20 Energy and Sustainability Working Group (ESWG) meeting hosted by the National Energy Administration of China on 12-14 April 2016 in Shenzhen, China.
Building on the outcomes from the First G20 Energy and Sustainability Working Group meeting on 28 January 2016 in Xiamen, China, G20 member countries discussed the advancement of energy efficiency, clean energy, energy access, and global interconnections, with a focus on the possible outcomes of the Second G20 Energy Ministerial Meeting taking place on 29-30 June 2016 in Beijing, China.
The IEF underscored its support to the G20 energy efficiency work program and noted that it is in the process of establishing an Asian Energy Efficiency Knowledge Sharing Framework, a cooperation initiative adopted by Ministers at the 6th Asian Ministerial Energy Roundtable of 8-10 November 2015 in Doha, Qatar.
The IEF briefed delegates on the work of the JODI Partner Organisations (APEC, Eurostat, GECF, IEA, OLADE, OPEC, and UNSD) to improve the timeliness and completeness of energy data collection for JODI-Oil and JODI-Gas, and recognised the on-going support of the G20 toward greater oil and gas market data transparency.
