Westminster Energy Forum Mission Image



The WEF's Objectives:


> Convene  expert practitioners in the fields of climate risk and energy transition.

> Share  strategic information on the challenges and opportunities of decarbonisation policy, investment and innovation.

> Inform  political and corporate decisions in support of Net Zero goals and ambitions.


Operationally the WEF functions like a small think tank, delivering two complementary workstreams during the political year for a network of 150 organisations in the UK and overseas. Each workstream comprises at least four high level events by invitation that provide:

> Climate Risk & Resilience Assessments - via Cross-Sector Stakeholder Insights
 
> Energy System Transition Assessments - via Industry Sector Reviews
