16th International Energy Forum Ministerial

SARTHAK IAS

The 16th International Energy Forum Ministerial (IEF16) gathers IEF Energy Ministers, industry leaders, and heads of key international organisations to debate the future of global energy security on 10- 12 April 2018 in New Delhi. Hosted by India and co-hosted by China and Korea, IEF16 aims to focus on how global shifts, transition policies and new technologies influence market stability and future investment and trade patterns in the energy sector. Dialogue among Ministers and industry leaders on how energy security and system resiliency will evolve along energy transition pathways, and meet global economic, demographic, and environmental challenges, will help secure an energy future that remains affordable, productive, sustainable, and fair to all.
IEF16 delegates are invited to consider how global market shifts and energy transition will shape the future of energy security. Participants are asked to engage in an energy technology neutral dialogue to strengthen energy market stability and achieve global goals through enhanced market transparency, trade, and investment among producing, consuming and transit countries.
Oil and gas producer and consumer country Ministers called for an open and neutral dialogue on energy transition at the 15th International Energy Forum Ministerial (Algiers, September 2016) as they gathered under the theme “Global Energy Transition: An enhanced role for the dialogue”. Ministers affirmed their commitment to the IEF producer-consumer dialogue and global energy security by participating in wide-ranging discussion on the importance of securing an orderly energy transition.
