- GENERAL INFORMATION
It is a great pleasure and honour for me, as President of the Monegasque Committee for the World Energy Council, to present our Committee to you and provide you with a certain amount of information concerning the energy situation in Monaco. I would like to thank all those who attended the WEC Executive Assembly meeting which was held in Monaco in November 2012. The Monegasque Committee is delighted to have hosted this national event, extremely important for WEC activity and the global energy community.
Monaco, a small State in size, could serve as a model in several areas, in particular energy, since it has consciously implemented, in accordance with the directions of its Prince, an energy policy aimed at promoting renewable energies and energy efficiency, as well as reducing greenhouse gas emissions and all forms of pollution. An Energy/Climate plan is now in force in Monaco, the key focus of which is described below. I wish to thank the various departments of the Government of Monaco, especially the Office for the Environment, for their help and assistance in producing this website.
Some of you had the opportunity to gain some insight into this policy whilst staying in the Principality, particularly if you took part in the various editions of the Euro-Mediterranean Energy Efficiency Forum, organised with the support of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.
I hope to be able to host other events soon relating to the world of energy in Monaco, a privileged venue for major international meetings, due to the wide range of choices available with regard to hotels and congress centres, together with the various aspects of our city with its long and rich history, and the many landmarks and places of interest.
