Our History

Pursuant to the Millennium Summit of the United Nations in 2000, all 189 United Nations Member States at the time (there are 193 currently) adopted 8 Millennium Development Goals to be achieved by 2015. Coming to the realization that meeting all Millennium Development Goals depends upon access to modern energy services which are a quintessential prerequisite to economic, social, and human development worldwide, under the leadership of Prof. Dr. Harold Hyun Suk Oh, the executives of the United Nations and the World Bank gathered together in 2007 and created World Energy Forum as a global body with the following primary objectives:

  • Providing leadership to achieve a universal energy access to benefit all nations and peoples
  • Providing leadership for world's transition to renewable and sustainable energy

Since its founding, World Energy Forum has achieved high-level leaders participation from governments, corporations, academic and financial institutions from across the globe and by doing so the organization has elevated the theme of “energy for all” as the highest political agenda and discourse globally.
