Three of the world’s largest energy and sustainability networks have joined forces within the Global Electricity Initiative (GEI) to support electrical utilities’ efforts to tackle climate change and improve energy access.
The World Energy Council (WEC), the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), and the Global Sustainable Electricity Partnership (GSEP) are uniting in a new partnership announced on the sidelines of the COP18 meeting in Doha.

The initiative will identify, collect and analyze the early action taken worldwide by electricity utilities to enhance climate change mitigation and adaptation.
