Dr Angela Wilkinson, Secretary General and CEO, World Energy Council:

“As communities around the world struggle with the high energy prices and increasingly severe impacts of climate change, there has never been a more critical time for energy leaders around the world to come together to shape a better energy future. However, as we look ahead to the next 100 years of energy, it’s critical we consider not just what the future of our energy technologies looks like but also how we increase society’s energy literacy and create more inclusive, bottom-up energy communities.

The 26th World Energy Congress will provide a critical inflection point to reflect on the last 100 years and plan a more people and planet-focused century ahead. As Europe’s leading energy hub, we are excited for the City of Rotterdam to host our event and help forge a more collaborative, innovative, and sustainable path forward.”

His Excellency Rob Jetten, Minister for Climate and Energy Policy, The Netherlands:

“The Netherlands has big ambitions when it comes to sustainable energy and climate, and we seek to play our role across the globe.

We live in turbulent energy times, and the importance of gathering world energy leaders together under the auspices of a World Energy Congress could not be greater. With a hundred-year heritage and successful track record, we are delighted to be hosting the World Energy Council during its centenary year.” 

Jeroen van Hoof, Chair of the World Energy Council, The Netherlands, and Chair of the World Energy Congress Rotterdam Organising Committee:

“On behalf of the Local Organising Committee and all the Dutch members and stakeholders of the World Energy Council, I am extremely proud that we will have the opportunity to organise the greenest and most inclusive World Energy Congress ever in April 2024 in Rotterdam.

Our ambition is to create an experience that will help bridge the turbulent world we have today and the sustainable world we must win for the future of people and the planet. We are eagerly inviting the entire global community of energy leaders to join us in Rotterdam and help us redesign a better version of the planet we all share.”
