The 2018-2021 Triennial Work Program (TWP) will build on the momentum of previous Presidencies to enhance the role of the International Gas Union (IGU) as the Global Voice of Gas.
The world is on the brink of an unprecedented transformation of the global energy mix while facing the challenge of coping with ever-increasing global energy demand, the need to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality, and the mission to bring affordable energy to the tens of millions of people who don’t have it.
The theme for the 2018 – 2021 triennium leading up to the 28th World Gas Conference held in Korea is: “A Sustainable Future – Powered by Gas”
Under the theme of this triennium, the following three areas of strategic focus and detailed strategic guidelines have been established in order to guide the work and efforts of the IGU committees and Task Forces.
- Overcoming environmental challenges
- Enhancement of energy efficiency
- Advocacy for policy and public acceptance
- Strategic partnership & policy cooperation
- Technological innovation
- Collaboration with renewable energies
- Accessibility improvement
A special session was held at WGC 2018 in Washington DC for the Presentation of the 2018-2021 Triennial Work Program (TWP).
