Impact Communities

Having an impact on the future of world energy  

Our impartial, global network connects over 3,000 members in nearly 100 countries from both the public and private sectors. We truly represent the world’s energy voice. Our work encompasses insight, data and views from those working on the ground in policy, governance, finance and investment, as well as the people who produce, consume, manage and supply energy. 

Our national Member Committees are at the heart of the Council and lead the energy dialogue at regional and local levels, enabling strategic dialogue and innovative collaboration between government, business and other stakeholders. They ensure that knowledge, expertise and insights are shared, facilitating the connections that are accelerating successful energy transition. 

Partners are vital to the Council, collaborating with our global network to lead the way in promoting innovation. Partnering with the Council presents an opportunity to shape system redesign challenges and insights, to become the leading voice in areas such as blockchain, cyber security, storage, hydrogen, and e-mobility. 

With innovation at the top of the World Energy Council’s agenda, our Future Energy (FEL-100) Leaders programme is one of our critical communities.  This dynamic programme takes the lead on incubating the next generation of energy leaders and transition pioneers through leadership development, networking opportunities and participation in the Council’s activities.

Members, Future Energy Leaders, Partners 

Our federated Member Committees represent the broadest possible range of energy and energy-related interests in their countries.  Together with our wide range of institutional and business contacts and connections across the globe, we have an unparalleled perspective on critical energy opportunities and challenges.

By collaborating with such a strong international network, our members are well placed to build the capabilities needed to deliver change. At the forefront of the ever-changing energy ecosystem, our members take forward shared insights and expertise to find the solutions that will ultimately impact the energy future. 

Our Regional Networks bring together neighbouring country interests into six global regions to help foster an exchange of knowledge and to champion regional priorities. In an era where cross-border solutions are increasingly important, these hubs ensure that governments, companies and stakeholders have access to an impartial forum with maximum reach and influence.

“For me, the FEL Programme turned out to be a life-changing experience. When I came to the World Energy Congress in Daegu in 2013, I was in the process of finishing my PhD. Through the Japanese FELs, I made contact with the prestigious Research Institute of Innovative Technology for the Earth (RITE) in Kyoto. I was hired a few months later. I literally got into my dream job thanks to FEL Programme!”

FEL-100 is the World Energy Council’s Future Energy Leaders’ Programme. It is designed to inspire, grow and develop the world’s energy leaders of tomorrow. Most importantly, it is one of the key ways that the Council helps build capabilities to accelerate successful energy transition.

From Energy for Kids to podcasts on the energy transition, the FEL community builds on creative ideas and the innovative potential of the next generation. Future Energy Leaders challenge conventional thinking and explore new strategies for the future of our energy systems. The programme offers young professionals a unique opportunity for learning and development with exposure to critical issues in the energy debate. 

“The need for a shared energy framework to inform successful energy transition is clear. Partnering with the World Energy Council to produce the World Energy Scenarios has given us broader and deeper insights into potential solutions to one of the world’s biggest challenges today.”
