Working towards successful Energy transition

The World Energy Council actively contributes the insights needed by energy leaders to make effective strategic, policy and business decisions about the energy transition. We provide reliable data, useful tools and impartial comment.

Our interactive Energy Transition Toolkit includes five comprehensive tools that can be used together or separately. They have been proven to drive effective change and bring us closer to achieving a successful energy transition.
