The Industry Advisory Panel was set up by the Energy Charter Conference in 2004 as a means to build on existing contacts with industry and to strengthen the dialogue with the private sector on the main directions of the Energy Charter Process, with a particular focus on risk mitigation, improvement of the business climate, provision of clean energy and sustainable energy development and energy security. Currently, it has members from 57 energy companies, international associations and intergovernmental institutions from 24 countries, covering all the segments of the energy value chain such as exploration, production, generation, transmission, distribution, finance, equipment, services, technology and consultancy. 

The main purpose of the IAP is to strengthen the interaction between the ECT constituency and industry with a special focus on the effective implementation of the Energy Charter Treaty. The IAP brings together some of the world’s largest, small and medium companies involved in energy exploration, production and consumption as well as key financial institutions and seeks to advise the Energy Charter Conference on the basis of expert input from members (both private and state-owned companies) and through examination from a business perspective of the relevant work of the Secretariat.
