The BusinessNZ Energy Council (BEC) is a group of New Zealand's peak energy sector organisations taking a leading role in creating a sustainable energy future. As a division of BusinessNZ, New Zealand's largest business advocacy body and member of the World Energy Council (WEC), BEC members are a cross-section of leading energy-sector business, government and research organisations. Together with its members the BEC is shaping the energy agenda for New Zealand.

All BEC members are automatically members of the WEC.

Participation from members is very important to the BEC and its membership with and contributions to the WEC.

Participation allows members to participate in both the BEC and the WEC programmes, help direct the outcomes of the programmes and by mutual exchange increase the value of their and members' respective activities.

The WEC offers extraordinary opportunities at the global, regional and national levels. Access to this high level network stimulates useful dialogue, promotes the exchange of ideas, aids development of new business partners and investment opportunities and provides valuable collaboration and information sharing across the energy sector.
