JODI Information Seminar

JODI Information Session
Kiev, Ukraine | 15 November 2018

JODI: A Concrete Outcome of the Producer - Consumer Dialogue
With the support of the Joint Organisations Data Initiative Partners Energy Data Transparency as a Key Enabler for National, Regional and Global Energy Security Mechanism

Organizers: International Energy Forum (IEF)
Target group: Open to all participants

Energy Ministers identified a need for more transparent and reliable energy statistics in support of secure and sustainable energy path. From day-to-day monitoring of energy markets against the backdrop of undue energy price volatility to investment decisions for better energy future, energy data transparency is of paramount importance.

As a global response to the challenge of achieving greater transparency in the energy landscape, eight JODI Partner Organisations (APEC, Eurostat, GECF, IEA, IEF, OLADE, OPEC, and UNSD)
representing both energy producing and consuming countries stepped up their efforts in cooperation to improve the availability and reliability of energy data.

The JODI Partners work together with the industry value chain and with national administrations from more than 100 countries around the world to establish global monthly oi and gas data dissemination mechanism for the benefit of all.

JODI provides a reliable, freely accessible and comprehensive database of energy statistics unlike any other in the world. Through the use of nationally-sanctioned data, which can be difficult if not impossible to access through alternative avenues, JODI offers a fair assessment of global oil and gas consumption and production on a monthly basis.

Data uncertainty can be detrimental to fair market operations. By improving data transparency, undue price volatility can be moderated, increasing investor confidence and contributing to greater stability in energy markets worldwide. JODI, as a database and a broader collaborative framework among companies, national administrations and international organisations, is instrumental to the pursuit of complete energy data transparency.

This information seminar will be an opportunity to explore how JODI collaboration framework can
support decision making & investment in the energy sector for a sustainable future to assure secure, efficient and fair energy future.

The JODI Partners during the seminar will present the unique collection and dissemination mechanism of this global initiative, and key features that differentiate JODI from other data sources.

The seminar will also invite energy analysts from international organisations and the industry to
elaborate the use of energy data in their energy market research in support of better decisions for a sustainable energy future.
