The World Energy Cities Partnership (WECP) is a non-profit organisation whose member cities are globally recognised as international energy capitals. These member cities actively seek and develop opportunities to learn, exchange, and engage in activities which strengthen multilateral ties. The membership primarily serves to facilitate business-to-business interaction, partnerships in energy-related activities, and the sharing of industry knowledge, contacts, and experiences, while providing a worldwide network of industry support services and resources. The organisation facilitates trade missions for local businesses to travel to member cities and capitalise on business development opportunities. This unique partnership also enables exchange beyond the energy industry and the exploration of opportunities for mutual development in a variety of strategic areas such as, education, environmental technology, medicine and bio-science, and tourism development.
