For the third time it is jointly organized by the Government of Austria, the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) and UNIDO.

One year after the Rio+20 Summit, the VEF 2013 will focus on the energy dimension of the Rio+20 outcome document “The Future We Want”. It will provide a high level forum for thought leaders, policy makers and energy practitioners to engage in an interactive dialogue on key sustainable energy topics and issues, including policies, markets, finance and technologies.

At the same time the Forum will contribute to the advancement of the global post-2015 development agenda by providing an opportunity for open debate and reflection on the role of energy in the broader context of the sustainable development challenges and lessons learned from the MDG framework.
