Why join WEC India?

The World Energy Council India (WEC India) has the unique distinction of being the only Not for Profit organisation that enjoys complete support of all Energy Sector Ministries. WEC India was constituted by Ministry of Power with an objective of making it a body truly and functionally representative of Energy Sector in India. Accordingly, WEC india works towards "promotion of sustainable use of energy resources for greatest benefit of all." The AIMS and OBJECTS of the society are aligned to and are consistent with these principles, and therefore, unlike membership of many other bodies, WEC India does not commit any reciprocal benefits for its members. However, direct or indirect benefits of WEC India's work are available to the community at large, to which members also have access. WEC takes pride making its programmes and final products to common public irrespective of membership status. We provide open access not only to all of WEC’s studies, reports, technical work and regional reports but also to a wide variety of information available from and through WEC’s London based headquarter.
