The World Energy Forum 2016 on September 14th, 2016 announced an update to the program agenda and exhibition, focused on ”Securing Energy Access for All”, to be held at the United Nations and others sites in New York City from October 19th–22nd, 2016.
The program includes topics such as “Future of Solar Energy”, “Financing Tomorrow’s Energy”, and “Building Energy Access Markets”.
More than 2,000 world leaders, corporate executives and trade delegates from more than 150 countries will join corporate leaders, associations, academics, and financiers to discuss the roles of business and government in providing universal energy access – part of the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The World Energy Forum previously announced that a delegation of Chinese government leaders and energy technology companies will attend and exhibit at the event.
Historically held every four years, the World Energy Forum 2016 follows the very successful World Energy Forum 2012 in Dubai. In response to urgent world energy issues and calls from many heads of state and energy ministers, the World Energy Forum will now convene annually, rotating national host cities each year.
The United States was selected following encouragement from the United States government and the United Nations.
