World Energy Council was established in 1924 in London during the first World Power Conference. Poland was one of the founding member countries. Now the World Energy Council is the leading non-governmental organisation which deals with all forms of energy. It associates 93 National Committees which represent the countries consuming in total over 90% of the global primary energy consumption. More information: www.worldenergy.org
Polish Member Committee is active since the creation of WEC, with the only break during the Second World War. In the post-war period until 1997 the Polish Committee was functioning within the structures of the energy ministry and was supervised by the energy ministers.
In 1997 Polish Committee of the World Energy Council was transformed into the self-governing association and has acquired the legal personality.
