What is it about?

The Energy Charter Protocol provides guidance on the development of energy efficiency programs, indicates areas of cooperation, and provides a framework for the development of co-operative and coordinated action. The Protocol has three stated objectives. First, to promote energy efficiency policies consistent with sustainable development. Second, to create conditions that induce producers and consumers to use energy as efficiently and environmentally sound as possible, in particularly through the organization of efficient energy markets and recognition of environmental costs and benefits. Third, to foster cooperation in the field of energy efficiency.

Why is it relevant?

State parties are able to undertake co-operative and coordinated actions in the field of energy efficiency and environmental protection and to reduce the waste of energy. These measures allow State parties to reduce their energy expenditures and their dependence on energy producing States.

Additional Information

In order to become party to the Protocol, a State must have previously signed the Energy Charter of 1991 and the Treaty on the Energy Charter of 1994.
