Chapter Summary

The Energy Charter Conference, an intergovernmental organization, is the governing and decision-making body for the Energy Charter process, and was established by the 1994 Energy Charter Treaty (ECT). All states who have signed or acceded to the ECT are members of the Conference, which meets on a regular basis for three primary purposes: to discuss policy issues affecting energy cooperation among ECT signatories; to review implementation of the provisions of the ECT and the Energy Charter Protocol on Energy Efficiency and Related Environmental Aspects (PEEREA); and to consider possible new instruments and projects on energy issues. Russia and many of its neighbour-states of the Former Soviet Union (FSU) were rich in energy resources but needed major investments to ensure their development, whilst the states of Western Europe had a strategic interest in diversifying their sources of energy to diminish their dependence on the Middle East.
