On 8 December 2020, the International Energy Charter Industry Advisory Panel (IAP) welcomed COGEN Europe as its 67th member.
COGEN Europe represents 13 national associations and 50 organisations in the entire value chain of the cogeneration industry. The vision of the organisation includes creation of a resilient, decentralised and carbon-neutral European energy system by 2050 with cogeneration as its backbone, empowering European citizens and industry to generate their own efficient, reliable and affordable clean heat and power locally.
COGEN Europe's mission is to work with EU institutions and stakeholders to shape better policies and eliminate administrative, regulatory and market barriers to the broader use of cogeneration in Europe.
The Industry Advisory Panel is the expert consultative body to the Energy Charter Conference, providing policy advice from energy companies, international business associations and financial institutions on energy investment and the functioning of energy markets. The Panel includes members from all sectors of the energy industry and from a wide range of Member and Observer countries to the Energy Charter Treaty.
