The interplay between energy and meteorology (based on its broad meaning of weather, water and climate) has been steadily growing. For this relationship to continue flourishing, a formal structure for stakeholders to interact effectively is required. The process of formation of the World Energy & Meteorology Council (WEMC), an organisation aimed at promoting and strengthening such a relationship, is discussed in this chapter. Such a process involves building many diverse relationships, something which has been happening over several years, alongside the adoption of more formal practices such as stakeholder surveys. While the focus of this chapter is clearly on WEMC, this process could be used as a stimulus for analogous activities in the broader energy and meteorology area, specifically those at the national and regional levels, as well as similar activities straddling diverse disciplines, such as those promoted by the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS).
