Japan energy engagement

The Australia-Japan High-Level Group on Energy and Minerals Consultations (HLG) is the principal forum for energy and energy resources cooperation between Japan and Australia.

Topics generally discussed at the HLG are:

  • energy and resources policy updates
  • energy market reform
  • renewable energy
  • energy efficiency
  • resources trade and outlook
