Agenda Item 12 Presentation by the APEC Energy
Working Group (EWG) Mr Koichi Murakami Economic
Affairs Bureau Ministry of Foreign Affairs JAPAN

30th APEC Transportation Working Group Meeting
  • Established in 1990, the objective of the EWG is
    to maximise the energy sector's contribution to
    the economic and social well-being of the region,
    while minimising the environmental effects of
    energy supply and use.
  • Australia holds the EWG Lead Shepherd and EWG
    Secretariat roles.
  • The EWG is assisted by four Expert Groups on
  • Clean Fossil Energy
  • Energy Efficiency Conservation
  • Energy Data Analysis
  • New Renewable Energy Technologies, and a
  • Task Force on Biofuels.

  • The APEC region accounts for approximately 59 of
    world energy demand in 2004 and is a net energy
    importer. Energy demand is growing due to high
    levels of economic growth, industrialisation and
    urbanisation.

  • EWG's Energy Security Initiative (ESI)
  • In light of the growing demand for energy,
    promoting regional energy security is a major
    component of the EWG's policy work, primarily
    through the EWG's Energy Security Initiative
    (ESI).
  • The ESI comprises
  • Short-term measures to respond to temporary
    energy supply disruptions
  • Longer-term measures to address the broader
    energy security challenges facing the APEC
    region.

  • Short-term measures include
  • Improving transparency of the global oil market
  • Maritime security
  • A real-time emergency information sharing
    system
  • Encouraging APEC Economies to have energy
    emergency mechanisms in place.  
  • Long-term measures include
  • Facilitating energy trade and investment
  • Technology cooperation, energy efficiency, clean
    fossil energy
  • Renewable energy, and hydrogen and fuel cells.

30th APEC Transportation Working Group Meeting
At EMM8 in Darwin, Australia, May 2007, Energy
Ministers noted the implications of disruptions
and limitations to maritime security on economic
growth. As such, Energy Ministers instructed the
EWG to develop linkages with organisations
responsible for maritime security to identify and
to report any cross-cutting issues to EMM9.

30th APEC Transportation Working Group Meeting
The EWG seeks to identify cross-cutting issues
and potential areas of cooperation with the MSSG
to further promote and enhance energy security in
the APEC region.
  • Possible courses of action include
  • Attending each others meetings as appropriate
  • Share and exchange information on best practices
    and lessons learned on maritime security
    issues, including on maritime security capacity
    building needs and
  • Cooperation on potential project proposals of
    direct relevance to both groups.

30th APEC Transportation Working Group Meeting
By way of example, public information and
education are important to the success of LNG
projects and to the growth of LNG trade and
energy security in the APEC region. Public
concern about the safety of LNG ships, terminals
and storage facilities has surfaced on numerous
occasions. These concerns are legitimate and
require an adequate response in the form of
public information and education campaigns as
they provide a valuable input to those involved
in future new LNG projects. The views of the
MSSG would be most welcome in addressing such
issues.

EWG Project - LNG Public Education, Communication
and Information Sharing Campaign This project
was undertaken in response to public concerns
about the safety aspects of LNG infrastructure
facilities. The EWG could potentially benefit
from MSSG advice and information sharing
activities in this area. http//apecenergy.tier.o

30th APEC Transportation Working Group Meeting
Energy security is vital to the ongoing
prosperity and economic growth of the APEC
region. APEC Energy Ministers directed the EWG
to develop linkages with organisations
responsible for maritime security to promote
energy security in our region. Cooperative
activities between the MSSG and the EWG have the
potential to enhance and promote regional energy
security through sharing and information exchange
on best practices and lessons learned on maritime
security issues and capacity building needs.
