World Energy Council (WEC)

Founded in 1923, the World Energy Council (WEC) is the leading global multi-energy organisation. It covers all types of energy, including coal, oil, natural gas, nuclear, hydro, and renewables. WEC is comprised of autonomous national Member Committees in nearly one hundred countries around the world, including most of the largest energy producing and consuming countries. WEC is UN-accredited, non-governmental, and non-political and does not directly represent any specific energy industry, company, or organisation. It is a UK-registered charity, headquartered in London.

WEC's Mission is to promote the sustainable supply and use of energy for the greatest benefit of all. In pursuit of this mission, WEC runs a wide-ranging work programme focused on such areas as market restructuring; energy efficiency; energy and the environment; financing energy systems; energy pricing and subsidies; energy poverty; ethics; benchmarking and standards; use of new technologies; and energy issues in developed, transitional and developing countries. WEC is well known for its authoritative reports, analyses, research, case studies, medium and long-term energy projections, and policy and strategy recommendations.
