The World Energy Council calls on policymakers at COP17 to address the "Energy Trilemma"

The 3rd edition of the 2011 Assessment of Country Energy and Climate Policies published by the World Energy Council reveals that:

  • Focusing exclusively on reducing greenhouse gas emissions is not sustainable

  • Free market solutions alone can’t deliver sustainability

  • Only vision led and coherent energy policies, that address the “Energy Trilemma”, will gain public acceptance and investors’ trust to deliver a sustainable energy future
