Key players from the world’s energy sector will gather in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, next month for the 26th edition of the World Energy Congress (WEC). Over four days from the 22nd to the 25th of April, around 5,000 delegates and 18,000 attendees, including up to 70 ministers and 250 C-suite speakers will gather to discuss the revolutionary innovations and pressing concerns of the global energy sector. The programme is packed with talks ranging from geopolitics and new technologies to the broader question of how whole societies, from the top down, can experience the benefits of the energy transition.

“Against a backdrop of new energy insecurity concerns and the increasing damages that climate change is inflicting on the Earth’s natural life support system, it is neither easy nor enough to translate net zero roadmaps into reality. It is important to develop a shared and deeper understanding of the role of increasingly diverse energy systems in enabling a safe operating space for humanity,” said Dr. Angela Wilkinson, Secretary General and CEO of the World Energy Council, the host of the WEC.

“It is urgent to involve more people and communities and identify leading practices in inclusive implementation. The best way forward is to support diverse regions in leading with and learning from each other and appreciate the diversity of place-based, clean and just energy transitions.”
