WORLD ENERGY WEEK
World Energy Week (WEW) provides a powerful platform for global energy leaders and practitioners to discuss significant developments in the energy system and set the priorities of the world energy community.
The event brings together energy professionals from across the world, representing national, regional and global energy systems and sectors. It is designed to:
- Convene energy leaders and practitioners from across the spectrum of the energy system to identify and set the priorities of the world energy community
- Share insights and perspectives on new developments and experiences across the global energy system and how each country can address its energy trilemma
- Catalyse thought leadership
- Assess strategic priorities for the Council across content, network and platforms, allowing time for regional and global communities to come together
WORLD ENERGY WEEK 2020, 5-9 OCTOBER, BEIRUT, LEBANON
The 2020 World Energy Week will take place in Beirut, Lebanon. Participants are invited to take part in public and private conferences, meetings and roundtables, with specific sessions dedicated to CEOs and Ministers. A Future Energy Leaders’ Summit is also hosted alongside these gatherings.
Public sessions featuring high-level speakers showcase the content and insights of the Council across the energy transition, including energy policy, scenarios, risks and resilience, and issues monitoring through an Energy Transition Summit (ETS). There is also the host-led conference that showcases their energy sector.
Private high-level roundtable meetings are a key feature of World Energy Week. They include the World Energy Leaders’ Summit, a forum specifically designed for Ministers, CEOs and special guests, and the FEL Summit, tailored to the young energy professionals who embody the World Energy Council’s Future Energy Leaders’ programme (FEL-100).
“We gained an enormous amount from hosting World Energy Week 2018. Aside from the obvious opportunities to network and share expertise, a significant number of our members and stakeholders reported that they were able to move forward their strategies or business ideas in a meaningful way. This is exactly the kind of progress we need to find a way forward for energy transition both here in Italy but, more importantly, on a global level.”
