Abstract

The article deals with the problems of multilateral international energy cooperation in North-East Asia (NEA). The relevance of the study comes from gradual formation of common energy markets in the region, active introduction of innovative energy technologies, as well as the further development of renewable and nuclear energy in the NEA countries. The main purpose of the study is to analyze the mechanisms of multilateral international energy cooperation, taking into account the infrastructure and organizational changes that have occurred in the energy sectors of the NEA countries since the early 2010s. Key examples are used to assess the evolution of such cooperation in different areas, from the development of gas pipeline transport infrastructure and joint R&D in the field of creating such infrastructure, to the formation of common energy institutions at the international level.
