The Energypact Foundation was established in 2007 in Switzerland as a non-profit and non-political organisation, and is now in the process of relocating to Vienna, Austria. Its mission is to promote the balanced use of energy sources with the objective of reconciling innovation, economic development and the protection of the environment. In order to better respond to threats to energy infrastructures, during the last two years, the EnergyPact Foundation has increasingly focused on cyber security for the energy sector.
This focus is reflected in the foundation’s vision:
An international collaborative community of technologically and risk informed leadership, researchers, implementers, and stakeholders for the development, sustainability, and security of energy production, transmission, and delivery to address today’s challenges and tomorrow’s needs.

ENERGYPACT FOUNDATION COMMITTEES
Energypact Foundation is strategically advised by three committees: Security Diplomacy Committee, Industry Engagement Committee and Scientific & Technology Committee. The members of these committees will be announced accordingly.
Security Diplomacy Committee
This Security Diplomacy Committee will assist the Foundation in identifying, developing, and promoting activities to foster discussion and information exchange regarding diplomatic solutions to meet the security challenges of the energy sector, with specific focus on cyber security issues. Composed of government representation from developed and developing countries, the Committee will help guide the Foundation to ensure that its strategy and associated activities respect a strict balance between the international partners. The Committee will convene regular meetings in parallel with the annual Vienna Cyber Security Week conference in Vienna.

Members of this Committee will be chosen to represent regional and industry specific interests.
