London, England: In an official communiqué, the World Energy Council has announced that it has formed a new partnership with the London-headquartered Arup, after the latter signed an agreement to be a Project Supporter for the World Energy Scenarios flagship study.

Arup and the World Energy Council, the release said, will collaborate to analyse how different key urban drivers will play into the different Council energy scenarios. The partnership, the announcement added, seeks to bring together World Energy Council’s global network of leaders and practitioners, and Arup’s experience within urban design from its own activities in innovation and technology. It further said the results of the partnership will be fed into the World Energy Council’s flagship Scenarios study which will be unveiled at the World Energy Congress in Istanbul on October 10, 2016.

Welcoming the new partnership with Arup, Christoph Frei, World Energy Council Secretary General, said, “With a special focus on urban innovation, Arup will be providing perspectives and analysis on a selection of resource areas that include ongoing work on e-storage, e-mobility, energy efficiency, solar energy, waste-to-energy, energy-water-food nexus and resilience.”

Paula Kirk, Global Climate Change Leader at Arup, said: “The role of Project Supporter will help strengthen our capabilities, as well as encourage city leaders to make informed decisions about the various forms of urban energy. We look forward to our long term partnership with the World Energy Council.”
