Friday, 19 April 2024: The World Energy Congress Rotterdam Organising Committee is pleased to announce Aramco and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Energy as two additional Platinum Sponsors for the 26th World Energy Congress.

Set to commence on Monday 22 April 2024 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, the World Energy Congress will be the most visionary and inclusive world energy leadership convening, bringing together international delegates, ministers, C-suite executives, NGOs, experts and academia, entrepreneurs and young energy leaders to reflect on global energy transitions.

The 26th World Energy Congress marks 100 years of convening the world energy community and delivering global and regional impact. At a critical turning point for leadership on clean and inclusive energy transitions worldwide, the Congress will reflect on the need to ‘Redesign Energy for People and Planet,’ putting people and communities at the heart of making energy transitions happen.

The Impact-focused programme and expert speakers will explore deeply local and truly global energy issues, addressing opportunities to make faster, fairer and more far reaching energy transitions happen for the benefit of billions of better lives and a healthy planet.

Dr. Angela Wilkinson, Secretary General and CEO of the World Energy Council, said: “The World Energy Congress is the most significant convening of visionary and practical leadership in energy, gathering the diverse needs and interests of energy ecosystems from all corners of the world. Joined by our new Platinum Sponsors, Aramco and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Energy, we are confident it will be an important moment in resetting strategic conversations on energy transitions and redesigning energy for the benefit of people and planet.

“Both Aramco and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Energy will bring important perspectives to the dynamic conversations and collaborative charge forward from one of the world’s most important energy regions currently engaged in its own transformational energy journey.”

Mr. Amin H. Nasser, President & CEO, Aramco, said: “There is no doubt that the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions is a critical priority for the world. But along with reducing emissions, equally important are energy security, energy affordability and economic development. Aramco is very much committed to supporting all of these goals.”
