13th International JODI Conference

10-11 October 2017   |   London, UK

The 13th International Joint Organisations Data Initiative Conference will take place at the prestigious Institution of Mechanical Engineers in London on 10-11 October 2017. The Conference will be generously hosted by the British Government and organised by the International Energy Forum (IEF) in cooperation with the JODI partner organisations: Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), the Statistical Office of the European Union (Eurostat), the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF), the International Energy Agency (IEA), the Latin American Energy Organization (OLADE), the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), and the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD).

The 13th International JODI Conference (IJC13) will convene actors contributing to enhanced energy data transparency at various stages of the JODI data supply chain, including industry representatives, professionals from national administrations, the JODI Partners themselves, and other JODI data users from around the world. Sustained and enhanced interaction among this diverse and growing group is vital to the ongoing success of the Initiative.

The Agenda discussion items for IJC13 will: 

  • Evaluate the status of global energy data transparency through the JODI framework since IJC12, New Delhi, India, April 2015.
  • Review progress made on the 5-Year JODI Action Plan established at the New Delhi meeting and reaffirmed by the Heads of JODI Partner Organisations during their September 2016 meeting in Algiers.
  • Seek views on the Initiative’s visibility and ideas to enhance engagement with JODI data users.
  • Explore potential avenues of improved cooperation with academia and others in support of JODI capacity building efforts.

The Draft Agenda for the Conference is available below.

IJC13 offers a rare opportunity for a cross-section of data providers and users from around the globe to meet, share and learn from their experiences. The JODI Partners envisage that the discussions and exchange of ideas during the conference will help not only to strengthen existing JODI activities, but will also serve as a catalyst to enhance the role of the Initiative beyond its current framework.

IEF Ministers at the IEF15 Ministerial Meeting in Algiers (September 2016) stressed their ongoing interest in improving global energy market transparency and their collective support for a strengthened JODI. The biennial JODI Conference plays a key role in the JODI development cycle which aims to continually advance the global energy data transparency agenda in support of stable energy markets as advocated by IEF Ministers, G20 leaders, and other stakeholders.
