The Executive Assembly was held alongside the WEC’s first Energy Trilemma Summit.
Building on feedback from member committees, the Summit provides a regular platform for members to discuss energy issues in addition to addressing the important governance issues of the WEC.
The two-day forum, which took place over 6–7 November, hosted roundtable discussions where member committee chairs, secretaries and other invited experts debated the global energy agenda framed around the WEC's studies on energy issues, scenarios, and resources, plus global and regional priorities.
The Summit also hosted a meeting of UN’s Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) Steering Group on Global Tracking. At the meeting the group consulted with the WEC community on how to track the progress on the three goals of SE4ALL: universal energy access, and doubling renewables and rather of energy efficiency increase.
