Russian Member Committee

Мировой Энергетический Совет


The Russian National Committee of the World Energy Council was established as a non-profit organisation at the end of 2000. It is an active member of the WEC, its technical committees and working groups, and participates in events organised by the WEC as well as hosting and organising other WEC-related events. The Committee aims to collaborate with countries and continents to solve global energy issues. The unique nature of WEC, as an “umbrella” organisation for each international committee, makes the Committee a unique organisation in Russia’s energy sector, with a great deal of national and international influence.
