The Republic of Argentina and the International Energy Agency (IEA) have agreed to increase their co-operation with a new bilateral programme on energy statistics.

They signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) this week following their meeting during the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue.

The MoU covers co-operation on G20-related energy issues, statistics webinars, energy data collection standards and methodologies as well as training and capacity building for Argentinian officials.

IEA Executive Director Dr Fatih Birol said: “We are delighted to formalise our bilateral co-operation with Argentina, which is undertaking impressive domestic energy reforms and assuming the G20 presidency in 2018, thereby raising its profile in global energy governance.”

The IEA recently revealed global energy-related carbon emissions were flat for the third consecutive year in 2016 and said they could be completely phased out by 2060.
