The World Energy Council (WEC), founded in 1924 in London, is an international platform that broadly addresses the world-energy-issues today and in the future.
The current and more specifically future global energy issues require extensive and in-depth studies to ensure that the expected future huge increase in energy demand can be met. This should be done in a sustainable but also affordable way.
The WEC informs global, national and regional institutions, governments and Non-Governmental Organisations by carrying out (scientific) studies and organizing high-level events and symposia.
The WEC is an international network that operates in more than 90 countries and has also been active in the Netherlands since 2015. A new start was made last year with about ten leading members (companies) working in the (Dutch) energy sector.
With the publication of two studies including ‘the benefits of Co-ordination’ (See below Publications), WEC NL has already clearly manifested itself as an important Dutch ‘think tank’ for government, institutions and industry in the field of energy issues. This covers the entire energy spectrum from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources.
