The establishment of the Advisory Board was endorsed by the APEC Energy Working Group (EWG) at their 16th meeting in Cairns, Australia, in August 1998.

Terms of Reference

The Advisory Board is a group of representatives of major research institutions located in the APEC region to facilitate APERC to conduct cooperative research studies.

Its primary role is to give professional advice on the on-going and proposed research of APERC with respect to the issues to be covered such as methodologies, approaches, databases, and information sources, as well as relevant experts to be involved.
