APERC acts independently as a regional research centre with its mandates and programmes focusing on the energy sector development of the APEC member economies.

The APEC Energy Working Group (EWG) is the official body that oversees APERC research activities, of which members consist of senior energy officials from each APEC member economy. APERC is responsible for reporting the outcome of its activities to the EWG.

APERC retains the Advisory Board, of which members include distinguished leaders from major energy research institutions within the APEC region.
