Policy pathfinding in the new normal

Thu, 8 October, 15.00 - 16.00, UK time zone (+1 UTC)

This year, the World Energy Council celebrates the 10th anniversary of our World Energy Trilemma. Since its launch in 2010, the Trilemma has provided an objective rating of a country’s energy policy and performance across Energy Security, Energy Equity and Environmental Sustainability. As an energy policy pathfinding tool, countries can use it to assess the impact of their policies over time. The session will launch the 2020 report, review its highlights, and discuss the top performers and best practices coming out of countries.

Building resilience amid disruption 

Thu, 8 October, 13.00 - 14.00, UK time zone (+1 UTC)

The impact of Covid-19 on the energy sector has been greater than any previous energy or financial shock and has exposed new vulnerabilities. Energy systems need to deliver reliable supplies and services to an increasing diversity of users and their different energy needs and be resilient to multiple emerging and systemic risks, disruptions and shocks – whether financial, environmental, technological or societal in origin. This crisis highlights the need to address whole energy system resilience, extending to people and supply chains, including blended infrastructures (physical and digital assets) and ensuring reliable energy flows in the face of extreme events and cybersecurity threats.

  • How might energy systems be designed, priced and managed for dynamic resilience to cope with a range of systemic risks?
  • What role can new market designs play in enhancing energy security and resilience?
  • Who will take the lead in addressing the energy-cyber-health security nexus?
  • What is the difference between ‘soft’ and ‘hard’ systems resilience?


  • Thomas  Leurent, Chief Executive Officer, Akselos
  • Gurdeep Singh,  Chairman & Managing Director,  NTPC,  India
  • HE Timipre Sylva, Honourable Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Government of Nigeria
  • Yana Popkostova, Founder & Managing Director, European Centre for Energy and Geopolitical Analysis, Bulgaria
