Angela Wilkinson is joining the World Energy Council to further strengthen the Council's Scenarios capability, under the leadership of Ged Davis, Executive Chair of the Council's Scenarios flagship study.

As the former Head of Strategic Foresight at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Angela led the upgrade of the OECD's strategic foresight capabilities. Angela is an Associate Fellow at the Said Business School at the University of Oxford. Wilkinson's previous roles have included the Director, Scenario Planning and Futures Research at the University of Oxford and Head of Special Projects, Global Business Environment/Scenarios at Shell International limited.

Angela has contributed to over 100 futures studies and has significant experience in international multi-stakeholder foresight initiatives.

Christoph Frei, Secretary General of the World Energy Council, said "Scenarios are ever more critical for business leaders in the context of great uncertainty. As we develop our scenarios & business insights activities, Angela will bring significant experience in scenarios development, business strategy, and public policy. Having worked in many countries and for organisations in both public and private sector she will be able to add greatly to our capabilities. I am delighted that Angela has agreed to join the World Energy Council."

Angela Wilkinson said: "I am very pleased to be joining the Council at a time when the energy sector is undergoing rapid transformation. We have taken energy for granted for far too long and the challenge now is to avoid sleepwalking into a different energy future. Energy is fundamental and vital. For society to flourish we need modern energy."

The Council's current World Energy scenarios, developed by the World Energy Council in collaboration with Accenture Strategy and the Paul Scherrer Institute  includes three scenarios entitled 'Unfinished Symphony', 'Modern Jazz' and 'Hard Rock', which present three distinct trajectories for the energy sector to 2060, with very different realities across regions. Presented at the 23rd World Energy Congress the scenarios have been used by a range of organisations to inform their corporate and policy strategies.
