World Energy Trilemma

Time to get real – the case for sustainable energy policy

Policymakers and the energy industry urgently need to work together to sustainable energy systems a reality.

To assist policymakers and the energy industry with pressing forward sustainable energy systems, the World Energy Council, in collaboration with Oliver Wyman, has prepared the report "World Energy Trilemma: Time to get real – the case for sustainable energy policy." This first of a two-part series of reports examines the drivers and risks preventing the development of sustainable energy systems. It then recommends actions to address these risks and to accelerate a global transition to a low-carbon future which will present new opportunities for economic growth.

The 2012 report describes what senior energy industry executives believe they need from
policymakers to advance sustainable energy systems. It is based on interviews with more than
40 energy industry CEOs and senior executives and the 2012 World Energy Council/Oliver Wyman Energy Sustainability Index built on an analysis of 22 indicators across 93 World Energy Council member countries. The 2013 World Energy Trilemma report will focus on what policymakers need from the energy industry.

All of these reports will be discussed at a World Energy Congress hosted by the World Energy Council in October 2013.
