The World Energy Council (WEC) is the principal impartial network of leaders and practitioners promoting an affordable, stable and environmentally sensitive energy system for the greatest benefit of all.
Formed in 1923, WEC is the UN-accredited global energy body, representing the entire energy spectrum, with more than 3000 member organisations located in over 90 countries and drawn from governments, private and state corporations, academia, NGOs and energy-related stakeholders.
WEC informs global, regional and national energy strategies by hosting high-level events, publishing authoritative studies, and working through its extensive member network to facilitate the world’s energy policy dialogue.See more at worldenergy.org
WEC hosts the World Energy Congress, which is the world’s largest and most influential energy event covering all aspects of the energy agenda. Staged every three years, the Congress 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.
Over the 90-year history of the World Energy Council the Congress has been key to the value of the organisation. The Congress has been staged in 20 cities across the world and the 22nd World Energy Congress will take place in Daegu, South Korea in 2013.See more at worldenergy.org
WEC maintains the work of Future Energy Leader Program (FELP), which has the goal to involve young professionals in the work of the council and share their ideas on matters.
We have decided to act in founding Hungarian Young Professionals in Energy (HYPE) in 2012. Our members are strongly related to the energy industry with high ambitions and significant knowledge. Our aim is to provide opportunities for gaining complex knowledge beyond universities and an appropriate place for professional discussions. As a result of our activities, we are publishing a White paper, in which we are summarizing the fundamental questions of a given topic.
