Seminar on APEC Energy Supply and Demand Outlook Report
The Asia Pacific Energy Research Centre (APERC) was established in July 1996 in Tokyo, as an affiliate of the Institute of Energy Economics, Japan (IEEJ), pursuant to the Action Agenda1 adopted by the Asia- Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders at the Osaka Summit in November 1995. The Government of Japan generously agreed to host the Centre.
The primary objective of APERC is to foster understanding amongst APEC economies of global, regional and domestic energy demand and supply trends, energy infrastructure development, energy regulatory reform, and related policy issues in view of the regional prosperity. APERC advocates rational energy policy formulation and enhances capacity building in energy research in the region, following the APEC's Non-binding Energy Policy Principles for furthering energy security, economic growth, and environmental quality in an effort to implement our mission and vision.
APERC’s activities for the current year onwards, including work on (1) Energy Demand and Supply Outlook, (2) Peer Review on Energy Efficiency, (3) Cooperative Energy Efficiency Design for Sustainability, (4) Peer Review on Low Carbon Energy Supply, and (5) Low Carbon Model Town Project, are directed at helping APEC members address these challenges.
