EWG projects are an important component of the EWG work program with over 400 projects undertaken between 1993 and 2014. Projects are developed in accordance with EWG priorities and initiatives, and reflect the directions of APEC Economic Leaders and Energy Ministers. Past EWG projects can be found on the APEC Project Database.
EWG Projects are APEC-funded and/or self-funded, with APEC-funded projects to be developed and implemented in accordance with APEC guidelines, as outlined in the APEC Secretariat’s Guidebook on APEC Projects. APEC projects are funded through the Operational Account, Trade and Investment Liberalisation and Facilitation (TILF) Special Account, the APEC Support Fund (ASF), and the APEC Support Fund Sub – Fund D: Energy Efficiency.
