Specialists in Energy & Climate Strategy since 2004

Our Mission:

‘To Evaluate the Strategic Risks and Opportunities Involved in the UK’s Energy & Climate Transition and Provide Insights that are Relevant to the UK’s Future Decarbonisation Pathways.’

The WEF delivers a leading Knowledge Exchange Programme that convenes specific networks of senior stakeholders who are responsible for the design and delivery of UK energy, climate and sustainability strategies out to 2030 and beyond.

It provides unique insight and value by actively addressing the UK’s strategic challenges in an integrated way, built around two specific and integrated workstreams that provide important continuity for over 150 organisations involved.

The WEF constituency meets regularly throughout the political year by invitation under the Chatham House Rule, and since 2004 we have worked with all the key organisations from the public, private and NGO sectors to ensure that the full value chain is represented in our pathfinding discussions.

WEF has established a strong reputation as a thought leader and for providing a ‘safe space’ for meaningful debate that cuts across typical silos.

The WEF also operates as an independent and  ‘mutually trusted entity’ with an access for all policy to ensure balanced participation. It does not undertake lobbying but works in the strategic national interest via close liaison with HMG and by being underpinned by a set of 5 Strategic Themes that guide its work programme to 2030.
