World Energy Leaders Summit
Next WELS: New Delhi, India - 6 February 2013
The World Energy Leaders’ Summit (WELS) is organized twice a year by the World Energy Council for its global Energy Leaders community to enable an ongoing high-level dialogue on critical issues affecting the energy world. A WELS is generally held in countries of critical interest to the global energy situation and is co-hosted with the Energy Minister of the host country and, possibly, the Mayor of the host city. Participation is on invitation only and exclusively for WEC’s Patrons and Global Partners CEOs, a select number of Energy Ministers, WEC’s Officers and Chairs of National Committees as well as selected guests and experts (60-80 participants).
The agenda of the WELS addresses critical issues identified through WEC’s issues surveys, and draws insight from WEC’s scenarios, policy assessment and resources and technology work. The meeting is informal, off the record and under Chatham House rules (summaries generally have no attributed quotes; quotes can only be attributed if agreed by the speaker).
