Assessment of Energy and Climate Policies
We live in a world of change and energy and -related policy innovation will affect our energy future in many ways. In the aftermath of the financial and economic crisis the world places more emphasis on specific government and business policies to guide us towards a sustainable energy future.

Which policies balance cost-effectiveness, social equity, environmental sustainability, security and effectively enhance the general welfare of the citizens of a nation or region? For energy businesses to invest in new technologies, infrastructure, and products while managing risk, they need clear and stable policy signals from governments. Governments and their publics in turn need assurances from business that the challenges can realistically be met and that there is sufficient corporate will to achieve balance while maintaining healthy regional and global economies.
The World Energy Council is a major and timely catalyst in bringing these issues to the forefront and in forging the roadmap and the institutional ties to make it happen. There is much to gain by examining the performance of specific countries and the good practices used by their governments and businesses.
