19 - 20 Sep 2023 Workshop — Paris, France

Electricity Security Advisory Board – High-Level Meeting and 10th Annual IEA/EPRI Workshop

Many countries have been required to re-think their energy security policies in light of current events, particularly those impacting the electricity sector. Fuel security, extreme weather events, lack of grid investment, power system flexibility and recovery from the covid-19 pandemic have emerged as key issues for policymakers around the globe.

There are many tools available to address these challenges – changes to power market design, new taxes, subsidies and regulations to name just a few. The Electricity Security Advisory Board will be a forum to aid the formulation of new electricity policies in both IEA member and non-member countries, bringing together global public and private stakeholders at regular intervals to discuss current pressing issues in electricity security and share approaches to managing these risks.

The event will start with a closed-door high-level meeting, featuring remarks from senior officials representing governments, regulators, system operators, industry and academia. This will be followed by the annual IEA-EPRI Challenges in Decarbonisation workshop, which will deepen and broaden the discussion of these key electricity security topics. This meeting will provide essential input to IEA activities on electricity security and market design.

The meeting will be informal in nature and held under the Chatham House Rule. Each session will be introduced by invited members of the Advisory Board and followed by a roundtable discussion. Attendance is by invitation only.
