WPC Energy, a leading organisation within the global energy sector, is excited to announce that our flagship Congress, first held in London in 1933, will move to a biennial cycle, replacing the current triennial cycle. This strategic change will take effect after the 25th WPC Energy Congress which will be held in Riyadh, KSA, from 26 – 30 April 2026.

 

The decision to shift to a biennial cycle stems from our commitment to more closely track developments affecting the rapidly evolving energy landscape, such as advancements in technologies, fluctuations in demand and supply, changes to pricing and regulatory frameworks, geopolitical tensions and of course progress towards transitioning to a low carbon energy model.  Hosting the WPC Energy Congress every two years will also increase opportunities for networking, collaboration, and community building amongst our membership comprising 60 National Committees as well as our global industry peers.

 

26th WPC Energy Congress

 

We are pleased to announce that, for the first time in its 90 year history, the 26th WPC Energy Congress will take place in Astana, Kazakhstan in 2028.

 

Jambulat Sarsenov, WPC Energy Vice President and Member of the Executive Committee:

 

“This will be the first international energy event of such magnitude to be held in Kazakhstan and we are delighted to be awarded this honour, having previously competed to host the Congress in 2014 and 2019 respectively. Kazakhstan is blessed with significant energy reserves which make us a major player in the global energy market and we are proud to take a leading role in international collaboration within the sector through trade and professional associations as well as UN accredited agencies and other organisations. We are fully committed to delivering a successful 26th WPC Energy Congress and to providing a rewarding and exceptional experience for all its participants.”
