Independent Accountability Panel
About The Energy Charter Independent Accountability Panel
The Energy Charter Independent Accountability Panel is the accountability mechanism underpinning the Energy Charter. Our role is to constructively evaluate individual performance of the energy businesses that sign up to the Energy Charter and the whole energy sector over time against the Principles in the Energy Charter.
The 2020-2022 Independent Accountability Panel reviews Energy Charter signatories’ annual disclosures, interviews the CEOs and engages with key stakeholders through forums and submissions to produce an annual Independent Accountability Panel Report focused on encouraging continuous improvement in the energy sector.
A key part of the Panel’s evaluation is its public consultation process including Stakholder Forums providing household and business customers the opportunity to discuss how the Energy Charter signatories are performing for their customers and what would deliver better outcomes for all customers.
