Mission and Objects
"To promote the sustainable supply and use of energy for the greatest benefit of all people"
This mission is carried out through the Objects, which were approved at WEC's founding in 1924 and modified over the years to adapt to the changing energy industry and the changes within WEC. WEC's objects (the "Objects") as they exist today are 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 means of supplying and using energy having, short and long term, the greatest social benefit and the least harmful impact on the natural environment, and publishing or otherwise disseminating the useful results of such research;
- undertaking actions, including but not limited to the holding of Congresses, workshops and seminars, to facilitate such supply and use of energy; and
- collaborating with other organisations in the energy sector with compatible goals.
