There is now a brand new online resource for businesses, governments, academia, and the media to look for and explore global energy information. The online resource, is the new website of the World Energy Council (WEC). The website (www.worldenergy.org) provides open access to the WEC’s energy knowledge repository from the organisation’s 90-year history.
The information is drawn from the WEC’s studies on energy resources, issues, policies, and global energy sustainability ranking. The website comes with interactive data visualisation tools to help users understand and compare energy data across regions. It also allows users to download select data in numerical or graphical formats.
Christoph Frei, Secretary General of the World Energy Council, says: “Making the World Energy Council’s reference material openly available is part of our commitment to the common good. We have been producing respected reports and analysis on the energy sector for decades, and it is right that in our 90th year we now make this information even more accessible.”
The new WEC website also offers users quick and easy access to essential information on the WEC and its global network of member committees in more than 90 countries. It also boasts improved navigation for users to find the WEC’s events, publications, and work programmes more easily.
