World Energy Council Future Energy Leaders Programme 2021 for young professionals.


Application Deadline:28 March 2021

The World Energy Council supports and promotes energy leaders of the future through the Future Energy Leaders platform (FEL-100). The FEL-100 global impact community of exceptional young professionals share a commitment to:

  • address the urgent need to humanise energy
  • seek innovative solutions for more energy and climate neutrality in the context of affordability and equality
  • engage in national, regional, and global activities and events
  • deliver innovative projects in support of our global energy community

The FEL-100 programme is one of the key ways that the World Energy Council helps build capabilities to accelerate successful energy transition.

Future Energy Leaders are an integral part of our ‘how to’ community. They work side-by-side with the world’s most experienced hands, brightest minds, and biggest hearts to forge new shared understanding and sustain new and more effective cooperation in this current era of more energy and climate neutrality. 

Future Energy Leaders further their experience, knowledge and skills and actively contribute to the Council’s wide-ranging programme of activities. As part our global energy community they are invited to participate and engage in national, regional, and global conversations. Through their engagement FEL-100 participants have the unique opportunity to grow their own personal networks of like-minded, equally motivated peers, energy experts and senior energy leaders.

At the heart of the programme are a set of FEL-100 projects and challenges, networking events and conversations with peers as well as exposure to the Council’s energy transition leadership tools. This provides wide-ranging opportunities for Future Energy Leaders according to their personal areas of interest, while ensuring there is a clear focus on work that delivers practical and interactive outputs in line with the Council’s mission and vision.
