World Energy Council Releases Annual Report 2021

Humanising Energy

As the world’s first and oldest energy community network and charity, the World Energy Council maintains an agile and adaptive strategy in delivering our enduring mission of energy for better lives of all people and a healthy planet.
This year’s Annual Report contains a detailed overview of how this approach, our work, and the full slate of tools we provide are delivering impact across the world energy community. 

The world energy system is more than the sum of its technology parts and adapts as the result of people making choices, both individually and collectively, at all levels of society. Societies everywhere are being challenged to change their relationship with energy and, in doing so, will change their relationships with one another. The World Energy Council provides the only truly open, locally deep and globally wide community platform for better quality conversations that involve more people in making energy choices and changes for the common good.

Dr Angela Wilkinson, Secretary General & CEO, World Energy Council


The importance of energy in everyday lives is back on the table as a critical issue for societies around the world, and humanity as a whole. We are now in the grip of multiple energy crises. Yet in a crisis, perspectives tend to narrow. The role and importance of the World Energy Council’s work – across our entire worldwide community – is essential to human progress.

Jean-Marie Dauger, Chair, World Energy Council
