Westminster Energy Forum Mission Image

The WEF's Objectives:

  • Convene expert practitioners in climate risk and energy transition by invitation.
  • 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, to a network of 150 organisations in the UK and overseas. Established in 2004, the two WEF workstreams now comprise eight or more high level events by invitation per year:

> Climate Risk & Resilience Assessments

> Energy System Transition Assessments
