Energy Policy Scenarios to 2050
This major study to develop new WEC Energy Scenarios followed earlier WEC work such as Energy for Tomorrow's World (1993) and Global Energy Perspectives (1998). The published study is available to view online or download in PDF format. Archived Committee documents and information is available (login required).
Energy and Climate Change
Policies and measures responding to concerns about climate change are shaping energy policy and influencing energy choices. It is important for climate change policies and programmes to be tested against all three elements of energy sustainability (WEC's 3 As) in terms of their long-term effects and during the transition phase. A report was published in June of 2007.
The World Energy Council in partnership with Oliver Wyman (global consulting firm) has over the past year worked on its third Assessment of country energy and climate policy aiming to identify key areas for policy improvements and to understand how successful policies can be transferred from one country to another. more >
