World Energy Congress

Complete Program of World Energy Congress 2010 Unveiled - More Than 150 top Calibre Speakers Will Gather in Montréal in Order to Debate the World Energy Situation

    Montreal, November 16 (ots/PRNewswire) - The Montréal 2010 World Energy Congress today unveiled the complete  program of what is, every three years, the largest international gathering on  all energy sources. The theme of WEC Montréal 2010, Responding now to global challenges - Energy in transition for a living planet, provides a framework  within which the energy industry's four main challenges will be addressed.  Each challenge will be the focus of one of the four days of the Congress:  accessibility, availability, acceptability, and accountability.

    A crucial moment

    The Congress takes place from September 12 to 16, 2010. This is an  especially favourable strategic time for new thinking on energy issues. It  will be the first international multi-energy gathering subsequent to the UN  Conference on Climate Change (COP15) in Copenhagen and will come only a few  weeks after the G8/G20 Leaders Summit, which will be held in Canada.

    The Congress unveils 25 names from its list of prestigious speakers

    Delegations from a number of governments and major international organizations, representatives of the entire international energy industry,  as well as eminent researchers and academics will take part in the sessions  of the 21st World Energy Congress. More than 150 speakers have been invited  to come to Montreal and debate the current world energy situation. Today WEC  Montreal 2010 unveiled a preliminary list of 25 of the speakers who have  confirmed their attendance at the Congress.

    "I am pleased to see that the Montreal Congress has attracted so much  interest from key players in the industry. I feel very strongly that by  bringing the most influential stakeholders in the energy industry to Montreal, the Congress will help generate concrete solutions to address increasingly  urgent concerns, felt by the public and governments alike, over future energy  demand and the ability of supply to meet this demand while complying with new global environmental standards," noted WEC Montreal 2010 Executive Director  Stéphane Bertrand.
