The 2015 edition of the World Energy Issues Monitor has been published.

The report was launched on 20 January at a prestigious industry event in Germany. Secretary General Christoph Frei presented the report findings at the Handelsblatt annual conference “Energy Industry” in Berlin, organised with the support of the WEC German member committee.

On 21 January WEC Chair, Marie-José Nadeau, showcased the new report in her keynote address at the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi, where she represented the Council.

This year’s Issues Monitor finds that energy price volatility and climate framework uncertainty top concerns of global energy leaders.

The 7th edition of the annual report, entitled “Energy price volatility: the new normal”, is a barometer of the top issues set to shape the energy sector for the year ahead. Thanks to the support of WEC members, this year’s report has gathered the views of more than 1,000 energy leaders, including ministers and chief executives from nearly 80 countries.

The report includes assessment of six world regions and deep-dives carried out by 27 member countries: Austria, Canada, Colombia, Estonia, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lebanon, Lithuania, Mexico, Namibia, New Zealand, Nigeria, Poland, Portugal, Romania, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Thailand, and the United Kingdom.
