The Expert Group Chairs and APERC meet twice a year in conjunction with EWG meetings to inform each other of the activities of their Expert Groups and to identify areas for cooperation. A summary of each group’s activities can be found below.
Expert Group on Clean Fossil Energy (EGCFE)
The EGCFE promotes clean and efficient production and use of fossil fuels through gathering and sharing timely information regarding the technical, economic, and policy aspects of clean fossil energy and technologies within the APEC region. In doing this, the EGCFE facilitates, coordinates, and implements a variety of activities, including projects, studies, workshops, conferences, and other meetings.
The current EGCFE Chair is Dr Scott Smouse, USA. Email: Scott.email@example.com
The EGCFE tables a Progress Report on its activities at each EWG Meeting, and maintains a website: http://www.egcfe.ewg.apec.org/
Expert Group on Energy Efficiency & Conservation (EGEEC)
The EGEE&C promotes energy conservation and the application of energy-efficiency practices and technologies through advancing the application of demonstrated energy-efficiency practices and technologies, developing and enhancing trade between APEC Economies in products and services and energy-efficiency practices and technologies, contributing to international efforts to reduce the adverse impacts of energy production and consumption, and improving the analytical, technical, operational and policy capacity for energy efficiency and conservation within APEC Economies.
The current EGEE&C Chair is Mr Terry Collins, New Zealand. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
The EGEE&C tables a Progress Report on its activities at each EWG Meeting, and maintains the EGEEC website: www.egeec.apec.org and the APEC Energy Standards Information System: http://www.apec-esis.org
Expert Group on Energy Data & Analysis (EGEDA)
The EGEDA provides policy relevant energy information to APEC bodies and the wider community, through collecting energy data of the APEC region, managing the operation of the APEC Energy Database through its Coordinating Agency, collecting policy relevant information from APEC Economies, and examining and advising on the research activities of the Asia Pacific Energy Research Centre.
The current EGEDA Chair is Mr Kenichi Matsui, Japan: email@example.com.
Expert Group on New and Renewable Energy Technologies (EGNRET)
The EGNRET promotes the increased use of new and renewable energy technologies in the APEC region. Its projects are implemented through the APEC 21st Century Renewable Energy Development Initiative and include developing policy recommendations, renewable resources assessments, information exchange, promoting commercialisation of renewable energy technologies, identifying and mobilising finance sources, and promoting technology cooperation.
The current EGNRET Chair is H. (Tom) Lee, Taiwan: firstname.lastname@example.org
The EGNRET tables a Progress Report on its activities at each EWG meeting and maintains a website: www.egnret.ewg.apec.org
Asia Pacific Energy Research Centre (APERC)
APERC is a Tokyo-based, independent operating energy research centre for the APEC region. Its research activities, which are guided by EWG priorities and overseen by the EGEDA, seek to foster an understanding among APEC Economies of global, regional and domestic energy demand and supply trends, energy infrastructure development, energy regulatory reform and related policy issues. Its publications include the biennial APEC Energy Demand and Supply Outlook, the annual APEC Energy Overview and in-depth studies on specific energy issues.
The APERC President is Mr Kenji Kobayashi: email@example.com
APERC tables a Progress Report on its activities and performance at each EWG Meeting, and their website is: www.ieej.or.jp/aperc.
