Munich - TÜV SÜD has now joined Weltenergierat – Deutschland e.V., the national member representing the Federal Republic of Germany at the World Energy Council (WEC). The WEC is made up of companies in the energy industry, associations, academic institutions and individuals.
“Responsible and sustainable energy management is one of the greatest challenges of our times“, says Dr Axel Stepken, Chairman of the Board of Management of TÜV SÜD AG and new Member of the Board of Weltenergierat – Deutschland e.V. “The World Energy Council offers a central, indispensable forum for a global exchange of experience on this issue and we also aim to contribute our experience as one of the international leading providers of testing and certification services.”
The World Energy Council (WEC) was established in 1923 and is headquartered in London. It comprises around 90 national committees which represent over 90 per cent of global energy production. This makes WEC a central forum for debate about long-term global issues in the fields of energy industry, energy politics and energy technology. As a non-governmental organisation, the WEC provides a global network of experts represented in industrialised countries, newly industrialised countries and developing countries across all regions.
TÜV SÜD offers an integrated service portfolio for ensuring safe, secure, reliable and sustainable energy production. The experts at the international provider of testing and certification services carry out tests according to national and international safety, quality and sustainability standards, ensuring that all energy-related demands and requirements will continue to be met in the future. In doing so, they contribute their comprehensive know-how and decades of experience in the production of energy from both conventional and renewable sources and their associated supply infrastructures.
