Who We Are

The Energy Council started as a single conference in 2010. A decade later it has become the world's leading network of senior energy executives, and continues to grow. The Energy Council is no longer just one singular conference, but a network followed by over 100,000 professionals around the globe. Our network's primary mission is to connect energy executives to each other and to the finance and investment communities surrounding them.
