Council Decision of 25 June 2019 establishing the position to be taken on behalf of the Union regarding the extension of the terms of reference of the IPEEC for the period 24 May to 31 December 2019.
On 21 February 2019, during the 16th meeting of the Policy Committee, the IPEEC Members approved the extension of the IPEEC terms of reference for the period from 24 May until 31 December 2019, without prejudice to the position of the Union still to be expressed. It is therefore appropriate to establish the position to be taken on the Union's behalf, as the extension of the terms of reference would be binding on the Union.
In June 2008, members of the G8, China, India and South Korea and the European Commission decided to establish an International Partnership for Energy Efficiency Cooperation (IPEEC), which is to facilitate those actions that yield high energy efficiency gains. The IPEEC provides a forum for discussion, consultation and exchange of information.
In May 2009, the terms of reference for the IPEEC were signed for a period of 10 years, until 24 May 2019. The terms of reference describe the cooperative activities of the IPEEC, establish its organisation, define the criteria for potential new members and contain general provisions regarding, including the funding of the Partnership and intellectual property rights.
