Introducing UN-Energy

  • Inter-agency coordinating mechanism for energy issues.

  • Combines some 20 United Nations agencies (including The World Bank) with active energy portfolios.

  • Established to ensure coherence in the UN system’s multi-disciplinary response to the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) and to effectively engage none UN stakeholders.

  • Work organised in 3 clusters with 2 lead agencies each:


  • Chaired by Kandeh Yumkella (UNIDO), Vice chair is Olav Kjorven (UNDP).

  • Provides a common UN voice on energy issues and serves as an entry point into the UN system’s work on energy.

The Need for a UN-Energy Knowledge Network

  • External component:

  • To help UN‑Energy to become a key entry point (“one-stop-shop”) into the UN System’s work on energy.

  • Internal component:

  • To enable members to engage in internal discussions and knowledge sharing activities at all working levels.

  • To enhance UN-Energy’s operational and delivery capacity by expanding its knowledge base.

  • To introduce a smooth transition to a closer, more unified UN-Energy, with strong collaboration among more professionals, both inside and outside the UN System.

  • To increase the visibility of UN-Energy as an inter-agency mechanism for cooperation, advancement and delivery on energy issues.

  • Designed as a “delivery as one” tool to help overcome the UN system’s fragmentation in support of UN-Energy’s mission and its possible future expansion.
