Yerevan International Energy Charter Forum

On Wednesday, 16 June 2021 the high-level Yerevan International Energy Charter Forum took place online discussing the topic “Facilitating Energy Infrastructure for Sustainable Development”. The Forum was jointly organized and hosted by the Ministry of Territorial Administration and Infrastructure of the Republic of Armenia and the International Energy Charter.

The Forum was the first public event under the Chairmanship of the Republic of Armenia in the Energy Charter Conference. Recognizing global energy challenges, trusting in enhanced connectivity, believing in open and competitive energy markets are crucial steps in attaining the objectives of the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals and facilitating energy transition. Almost 100 participants, including high-level officials and leading experts from 35 countries, international organisations, energy industry and academia participated in the discussions that highlighted the importance of continuing political dialogue to facilitate regional cooperation, energy trade and investments in cross-border infrastructure based on the Energy Charter Process.

In two sessions, the Forum covered topics such as regional energy cooperation, upgrading technologies to enable clean energy transition, development of regulatory frameworks for investment security and cross-border energy trade amongst others. Also, protection of energy infrastructure and digitalization were discussed.

The Forum was a remarkable event under the 2021 Charimanship and demonstrated the results of outstanding work of the Conference Chair, the Contracting Parties and the Energy Charter Secretariat.
