Energy Valley has taken on the role of the Norwegian Membership Comittee for World Energy Council. This week we attended the Executive Assembly and Energy Trilemma Summit in Aberdeen.
“From all around the world, energy leaders and societies gathered in Aberdeen this week to join the World Energy Council Executive Assembly & World Energy Trilemma Summit. From Korea to Uruguay, from Iceland to Marocco. It was truly inspiring and great fun to meet with fellow, global energy enthusiasts to share experiences, discuss and learn, but maybe most of all; get to know each other.” says Preben Strøm, Energy Valley CEO and Secretary General for the Norwegian member committee and adds:
“We are thrilled about all the opportunities that the community of the World Energy Council can offer”.
From 12 to 13th of October a worldwide membership community from nearly 100 countries and the leading changemakers from within and beyond the classic energy industry, gathered in Aberdeen. Here they participated in a forum to reset the energy transition. The Energy Valley team got to experience great speakers, networking opportunities, and a lot of good ideas on how we can cooperate in the future.

Mobilizing people-centric energy trilemma solutions
Under the theme Transformational solutions in turbulent times, the participants identified balanced opportunities for navigating successful global energy transitions in a faster-paced and more fragmented world.
“The energy crisis is global and affecting us all. But it also gives some great business opportunities which now will be explored together in an international environment. Not only for the members of Energy Valley but also for the entire Norwegian energy industry, the World Energy Council will give great opportunities both for external network, access to potential new markets, access to talent and to get insights, reports, and invitations to global events that are relevant for their business.” says Strøm.
