Supporting UK Energy Strategy since 2004

The Westminster Energy Forum (WEF) is an independent UK industry association whose remit is:

"To convene senior practitioners from across the UK energy and climate sector in order to help identify, and to evaluate, the key strategic issues and risks that may affect the design and delivery of UK policy and energy infrastructure."

WEF operates as a mutual trusted entity to monitor emerging and systemic challenges to the UK energy sector, working across sector silos in the overall national interest.  The WEF programme delivers independent insight and continuity for the sector via a long-established network of organisations who, together, help to assess emerging risks and ensure that the right practitioners come together to consider the relative importance of these issues for future decision-making.
