The Vienna Energy Club brings together Vienna-based
international organizations dealing with energy, providing an
informal platform for discussions and exchange of views.

While united in their efforts to put energy-related issues at the forefront of public discussion, and sharing a common host country, the members of the Vienna Energy Club do differ widely in terms of their size, their focus, and membership, as well as in geographic scope and their core missions. Thus, the Vienna Energy Club members bring a rich range of opinions and perspectives to key energy questions:



At the initiative of Mr. Slavtcho Neykov, Director of the Energy Community Secretariat (2006-2012), these organizations held their first joint meeting in September 2009, which resulted in the adoption of the designation “Vienna Energy Club” for the gathering, and in a decision to continue with a regular cycle of meetings. The Austrian Federal Ministry for Europe, Integration and International Affairs and the Federal Ministry for Sustainability and Tourism represent the host country at the meetings.

The Club meets two times a year, based on a rotating host principle.
