World Energy Congress
The World Energy Congress is the world’s longest-established energy event, having shaped the global energy agenda for a century. In today’s unpredictable, turbulent and fast-shifting world, the 26th World Energy Congress in Rotterdam will be the most important energy convening of the next decade.
The only global energy event convening 200+ C-suite speakers and 70+ Ministers, alongside 7,000+ international energy stakeholders, the Congress enables the highest levels of government-to-government dialogue and unites businesses and communities of all shapes and sizes. This four-day event bridges sectors, geographies, generations and systems to make faster, fairer, and more far-reaching energy transitions happen.
Under the theme ‘Redesigning energy for people and planet,’ an impact-focused content programme of 60+ sessions is built on the collective insights and experience of the Council’s unique global network of over 3,000 member organisations and presence in more than 100 countries. With a world-class exhibition and unparalleled networking opportunities, the 26th World Energy Congress will challenge conventional thinking and drive action to progress clean, fair and inclusive energy transitions in all world regions.
Co-hosted by the World Energy Council and the Netherlands Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy and taking place from 22-25 April 2024, this edition celebrates 100 years since the Council’s formation and the first World Energy Congress. As the independent and pragmatic voice of the global energy agenda, only the Council has the deeply local and globally networked convening power to progress a better energy future for all.
Oil and gas operations are commonly found in remote locations far from company headquarters. Now, it's possible to monitor pump operations, collate and analyze seismic data, and track employees around the world from almost anywhere. Whether employees are in the office or in the field, the internet and related applications enable a greater multidirectional flow of information – and control – than ever before.
