About The Netherlands Member Committee, World Energy Council

The Netherlands National Committee aims to promote sustainable energy development in The Netherlands, as a part of the World Energy Council’s energy vision.

WEC is independent and tells a complete story regarding energy transition based on a scientific basis. It brings together businesses, government and financiers from all interested sectors. By fostering collaboration, we aim to realize and even accelerate the energy transition.

As a member of the World Energy Council network, the organisation is committed to representing the national perspective of The Netherlands within national, regional and global energy debates. The committee includes a variety of members to ensure that the diverse energy interests of The Netherlands are appropriately represented. Members of the committee attend high-level events, participate in energy-focused study groups, contribute to technical research and are part of the global energy dialogue.

In April 2024 the World Energy Council the Netherlands proudly hosted and organised the 26th World Energy Congress in Ahoy Rotterdam.
