The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region extends from Morocco to Iran and embraces some eleven Member Committees. The MENA region not only includes major energy producers but also some of the fastest-growing energy consuming countries.

Energy security from the producer perspective and sustainable energy policies are two key themes in this region. In particular, there is a growing awareness that national energy policies have to tackle issues of energy efficiency and ways of expanding the domestic energy mix in order to maximise hydrocarbons available for export.

WEC is increasingly seen in the region as a forum for shared experiences and best practice. Member committees in this important energy producing region actively support the World Energy Trilemma work programme and are increasingly active in WEC’s governance processes.
