Dear Friends,

23rd World Energy Congress will be held in Istanbul on October 9-13, 2016.

Formed in 1923, World Energy Council is the UN-accredited global energy body, representing the entire energy spectrum, with more than 3000 member organisations located in over 90 countries and drawn from governments, private and state corporations, academia, NGOs and energy-related stakeholders.

The World Energy Council hosts the World Energy Congress, which is the world’s largest and most influential energy event covering all aspects of the energy agenda. Running since 1924, the triennial World Energy Congress enables dialogue among Ministers, CEOs and industry experts on critical developments in the energy sector.

As the world’s premier energy gathering, the Congress offers a unique opportunity for participants to better understand energy issues and solutions from a global perspective. The Congress has been staged in 21 cities across the world and the 23rd World Energy Congress will take place in Istanbul, Turkey.

Under the theme of “Embracing New Frontiers”, the 23rd World Energy Congress will be held in Istanbul, Turkey from 9 –13 October 2016. Co-hosted by the President of Turkey, H.E. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, and the World Energy Council, the event will welcome 10,000 delegates from across the energy spectrum to address critical developments in the energy sector.

Turkey will be a wonderful host for this important Congress and Istanbul, with its cultural diversity and unique geographic location, is naturally placed to build bridges between continents, cultures, ideas and people. Participants of the 23rd World Energy Congress will gather where Asia meets Europe, where history goes hand in hand with modernity, and where the energy sector will confront its challenges and embrace new frontiers.
