WEC to launch 2014 Trilemma report next Monday November 24th

Posted on 22 October 2014

The World Energy Council, in partnership with global consulting firm Oliver Wyman, will release its 5th annual World Energy Trilemma report on 24 November 2014.


The report supports a global dialogue on how to tackle the energy trilemma: the triple challenge of finding solutions that simultaneously deliver energy security, universal access to affordable energy services, and environmentally sensitive production and use of energy. The report includes the world’s most comprehensive ranking of countries’ energy policies, and helps identify areas of success and aspects for improvement.

On the occasion of the launch of the 2014 Trilemma report, the United States Energy Association (USEA) – the US WEC committee – will host a panel discussion, chaired by Joan MacNaughton, Executive Chair of the World Energy Trilemma. CEOs from the energy and finance sector along with policymakers will discuss the issues raised in the report and provide insights into how the energy sector can deliver sustainable and resilient energy systems by working together with the finance community.

Discussion leaders:

  • Francois Austin, Partner, Oliver Wyman
  • Francisco Barnés, Commissioner, Energy Regulatory Commission, Mexico
  • Charles Feinstein, Director, Energy & Extractives Global Practice, World Bank, USA
  • Marie-José Nadeau, Chair of World Energy Council; Executive Vice President, Hydro-Québec
