From 4 – 7 December 2023, more than 7,000 international energy stakeholders will convene for the 26th World Energy Congress.

The theme, Redesigning Energy for People and Planet, aims to start the conversation that will secure new possibilities of better energy. It will explore the role of connected energy societies in driving forward global energy transitions in today’s less predictable, more turbulent and faster shifting world.

As we advance our understanding of how successful energy transitions can create useful energy and engage users in redesigning energy to meet the needs of current and future generations, this four-day event will navigate the most pressing issues within the critical context of energy security, affordability and sustainability.

Hosting around 7,000 delegates and 100 exhibitors across 30,000 sqm. of exhibition space that attracts 18,000 attendees over four days, the Congress connects and inspires experienced and future energy leaders and practitioners from around the world.
