World Energy Council

The World Energy Council is the most representative body of the energy industry with members in more than ninety countries. Its mission is to promote the sustainable supply and use of energy for the greatest benefit of all. Every three years, the WEC holds the World Energy Congress, a major global energy event attracting 4,000+ delegates. The next Congress will be in Montreal in September, 2010 (from their website).

I had the privilege of representing Canada at the 1995 WEC Congress (thanks Canadian Gas Association!) I've set up a LinkedIn page for members of that congress to reconnect. If anyone of my readers would like to join and have attended a WEC event - either find the LinkedIn group, or email me.

It will be really interesting to see how the conversation has changed over the last three years!

Well, I can tell you, back in 1995 there was little discussion over climate change. There was a concern over environmental damage, but it was more focused on local air pollution. Things have changed a lot in 14 years!
