Energy Trilemma Summit
The expected doubling or even tripling of the global energy demand by 2050, the need to cut global greenhouse gases by fifty per cent during the same period (which requires a cut of eighty per cent in OECD countries), the 1.3 billion people who are still without energy and the need to improve global governance in respect of the management of global risks from large-scale accidents, require massive transformational efforts on a global scale.
With these challenges in mind, the World Energy Council (WEC) has set the “Energy Trilemma” agenda, highlighting the trade-offs between three dimensions: energy security, social equity (energy access and affordability) and environmental impact mitigation (climate change).
Following the positive feedback from the interactive sessions and Chairs Roundtable at the Oran Executive Assembly, WEC hosted an Energy Trilemma Summit in Monte Carlo, Monaco. The Summit provided an exclusive opportunity for WEC’s Community, together with special guests, to focus on ways to overcome the energy trilemma and to secure prosperity.
