Website: http://www.wec-italia.org

The Italian National Committee of the World Energy Council (WEC Italy) is a non-profit multi-energy association based in Rome, set up under the patronage of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the former Ministry of Industry, Trade and Crafts in 1988. WEC Italy’s members’ network brings together industry, institutions and universities and represents the different levels of all energy sources. Due to these characteristics, the Association has taken on a role of “super partes” in the Italian energy sector. WEC Italy promotes the World Energy Council’s mission and objectives and participates in its Global Studies Programme. It is also active in publishing the results of these studies in Italy. The Association also participates in furthering the national energy debate, mainly organizing conferences and workshops on key energy issues and acts to provide reliable and up-to-date information at all levels, not only for people working within the sector.
