The World Energy Council (WEC) is the largest global network of energy leaders and practitioners dedicated to delivering a sustainable energy system for the greatest benefit of all. Originally intended as an organisation to manage a gathering of energy experts, the WEC has evolved into one of the world’s most influential energy organisations.
The WEC actively supports intergovernmental organizations, governments and companies to deliver sustainable energy systems. It brings together all of the world’s economic areas, every kind of energy ranging from renewables to fossil fuels, and every kind of organization.
The WEC objective is to promote the sustainable supply and use of energy for the greatest benefit of all people by collating data about and undertaking and promoting research into the supply and use of energy, hosting Congresses, workshops and seminars on the supply and use of energy and collaborating with other organizations in the energy sector with compatible goals.
Every three years, the WEC hosts the World Energy Congress which provides a platform for energy leaders and experts in all aspects of the sector to address the challenges and opportunities facing suppliers and consumers of energy.
