Meeting in Vienna on 14 December, Members of Parliament of the eight Energy Community Contracting Parties gathered together to discuss the future work programme and procedural rules of the Energy Community Parliamentary Plenum. Established by a decision of the 2015 Energy Community Ministerial Council, the plenum will bring together two representatives from each national parliament of the Contracting Parties and up to 16 representatives of the European Parliament. The Parliamentary Plenum will formally begin its work following the appointment of European Parliament representatives.

In the evening, the Members of Parliament joined the Annual Debrief of the Energy Community Secretariat to the Diplomatic Corps. Ambassadors of the Energy Community Contracting Parties, Observers and EU Member States and other high-level guests also took part in the event.
