WORLD ENERGY WEEK
World Energy Week is a powerful platform that connects the diverse regional realities and priorities of our worldwide community from over 100 countries with the global energy agenda. It provides an opportunity to take stock of the commitments and progress made following the World Energy Congress, and springboard our community’s impact for a further year.
We are thrilled to announce the host of World Energy Week 2025 as the Panama Member Committee
Panama, long seen as the connection between the global north and south, plays a key role in energy and energy-adjacent industries and will provide a vibrant backdrop for this convening of energy leaders from across the globe in October 2025.
“World Energy Week is a powerful platform that connects the global energy agenda with the realities and priorities of energy transitions here in Panama,” said Jorge Rivera Staff, National Energy Secretary of Panama. “We are thrilled to host this important energy event in 2025 and convene the World Energy Council's global community to progress faster, fairer and more far reaching energy transitions."
“Convening and connecting visionary leaders across the world energy ecosystem for impactful conversations is essential in making energy transitions happen. Accelerating decarbonisation with justice and resilience is the best way to secure more energy for better lives and the health of the planet that we all call home,” said Dr Angela Wilkinson, Secretary General and CEO of the World Energy Council. “World Energy Week is an important platform for conversations and collaborations which leverage the diversity, flexibility and scalability of the Council’s global community network.”
“The confirmation of Panama as the World Energy Week 2025 host is a great opportunity for both our country, for the American continent, and especially for the LAC region," said Claudio Seebach, Executive Chairman of Generadoras de Chile, the business association of Chilean electricity generators, and the World Energy Council Vice Chair for Latin America and the Caribbean. "World Energy Week provides the opportunity to meet with representatives of the whole world energy community, share experiences and perspectives about energy transitions pathways, and exchange possible solutions as we accelerate a path forward. It truly is a must-attend event."
“World Energy Week provides a one-of-a-kind opportunity to showcase the vibrant energy sector from across the Latin American region, and create a hub of ideas connecting people from all over the world, as we work to humanise energy and progress clean and just energy transitions,” said Hector Cotes, Chair of the World Energy Council Panama Member Committee. “We are thrilled to host the upcoming World Energy Week 2025 in Panama.”
World Energy Week LIVE 2021
World Energy Week 2021 took place from 5-7 October and was hosted live from Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan. The digital event centered on the theme 'Energy for Better Lives', building on the conversations started with our Humanising Energy vision.
In an increasingly digital post-pandemic era, physical energy is still the ultimate connector and bridge to a better future in which globally connected energy societies flourish in a harmony of human progress and planetary health.
World Energy Week LIVE 2021 convened energy leaders and actors in peer exchange and interactive conversations on climate neutral and carbon positive energy developments, evident in all world regions. With energy developments once again centre stage, it provided a timely opportunity to clarify how responsible energy leaders find ways to build forward together in the new pandemic context of affordability and social justice.
