Who we are

The World Energy Council is the world’s principal network of energy leaders and practitioners. The organisation has a co-ordinating Secretariat based in London, United Kingdom, under the direction of the Secretary General who reports to the Council’s board, the Officers Council, under the leadership of an elected Chair.

The key functions of the World Energy Council are guided by the Standing Committees, made up of elected members from across the world. The Council gathers annually for an Executive Assembly to agree the strategic direction of the organisation.

The World Energy Council’s National Member Committee operates independently under a regionalised structure, with elected Regional Vice Chair’s to oversee activities and ensure coordination.

The World Energy Council’s funding is devolved to reinforce the organisation’s neutrality.
