Mayors and senior officials from 12 of the world’s leading energy cities will arrive in Aberdeen for the World Energy Cities Partnership (WECP) annual general meeting (AGM) and Offshore Europe. Established in 1995, the WECP connects 19 of the world’s leading energy capitals. It serves to facilitate business-to-business interaction, partnerships in energy-related activities and the sharing of industry knowledge and experience, while providing a worldwide network of industry support services and resources. A key theme of this year’s AGM conference will be “From Alternative to Mainstream – Towards a 21st Century Energy Mix”. Renewable energy is no longer seen as an alternative or future energy; it has become a mainstream energy source and this topic will be a focal point throughout the four days. The conference will also highlight Aberdeen’s status as a global business centre and the key roles its oil, gas and energy chain is playing in energy transition towards a lower carbon energy system.
