Progress report on the implementation of the St. Petersburg Principles on Energy Security out
The site now carries the progress report on the implementation of the St. Petersburg Principles on Energy Security, under Summit Documents where it will be found in the Further Documents section. The paper, which is entitled: “St. Petersburg Plan of Action: Global Energy Security – IEA Evaluation of G8 Countries’ and the European Commission’s Progress on the 7 Key Action Areas,” is available in the English-language version alone and may be consulted, printed and downloaded in PDF.
The report sets out the International Energy Agency’s appraisal of the progress made in the G8 member states and by the European Commission in implementing the energy security principles agreed at the G8 Summit held in St. Petersburg in 2006 and followed, during the Japanese G8 held in Hokkaido Toyako last year, by the first implementation progress report. This second report, which is broadly based on last year’s overall analysis, is updated in the light of the self-assessment figures supplied by each individual country and the European Commission and also takes in reports and updates from both the International Energy Agency and other specialist sources.
