World Energy Council (WEC)

The Energy Council of Canada is a “Founding Member” and one of more than 90 country members of the World Energy Council, which was established in 1923.

As the UN-accredited global energy body, the World Energy Council produces a number of major reports including: the World Energy Resources Report;the World Energy Trilemma; the annual World Energy Issues Monitor; and the World Energy Scenarios. These in depth reports enable policymakers and leaders in the energy field to gain a better understanding of the developments likely to be shaping the energy transformation to 2050.

In addition, using the World Energy Council’s distinctive approach, the World Energy Council builds on the in-depth knowledge of its extensive member network through formal Study Groups to consider current issues such as Cleaner Fossil Fuels Systems, Rules of Trade and Energy Efficiency Policies and Technologies.

Energy Council of Canada members have access to these reports and studies and can participate in a number of World Energy Council activities.
