(The partner countries are Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Russia, and the Republic of South Africa, and Chile and Estonia as candidate countries for accession).
These 37 countries collectively represent more than two-thirds of the world’s energy production and more than three-quarters of global demand.
The Ministerial, which took place on 18-19 October 2011 at the OECD Conference Centre in Paris, France, was a unique opportunity for government ministers and industry leaders from all over the world to discuss major energy-related issues, and the future of the world energy system.
The theme – Our Energy Future: Secure, Sustainable and Together – focused discussions around the IEA’s work on energy security, sustainability (economic and environmental) and engagement with non-member countries.
Around 35 Chief Executives from the IEA’s Energy Business Council also took part in the opening session, the theme of which was Government and Industry: Co-operating to secure a better energy future. A presentation on key messages in the forthcoming World Energy Outlook 2011 was followed by an interactive debate on topical energy sector issues, such as the likelihood of a golden age of gas.
