2009 Pacific Energy Summit
World leaders in science, policy, and industry convened in Tokyo, Japan, to discuss the topic "Energy Security and Economic Growth in the Asia-Pacific: Innovations, Markets and Smart policies for a Low-Carbon Future" at the inaugural Pacific Energy Summit, held in Tokyo, Japan, on November 3-5, 2009.
Discussions focused on developing a roadmap for action around efficient and clean energy technologies and the various mechanisms to promote implementation of these technologies as well as the related uncertainties and challenges that countries such as China, India, Japan, and the United States face.

Research and Results
The annual Pacific Energy Summit provides a vehicle for ongoing collaboration and dialogue on the topics of energy security and climate change and seeks to forge lasting partnerships that address these challenges jointly. Participants will receive expert papers in advance of the Summit to frame and inform the panel discussions. Following the Summit, these papers are distributed to key stakeholders in the region along with a final report summarizing key discussion points and findings.
Briefings with key stakeholders and policymakers will be held throughout the region to further the summit discussion and findings.
