World Energy Policy Summit


The World Energy Policy Summit (WEPS) is an annual international conference to encourage discussion, debate and direction. It seeks to bring together diverse views on various issues and developments that influence shaping policy by governments, companies and other entities pertaining to various sources of energy.

WEPS emphasizes that we live in an inter-dependent world that requires better understanding and compatibility between policies of various countries, organisations, entities and societies around the world. WEPS aims to play a key and dynamic role in that development.

Over the years, WEPS has acquired almost an iconic name as a quality conferencing platform for generating high-quality and in-death discussions, perspectives and ideas. Top policy and law makers, companies, industry leaders and executives, bankers, diplomats, academics, thinkers, and opinion leaders regularly participate in this unique conference. WEPS is designed to be one of the foremost conferencing and energy policy-shaping platforms in the world.
