The 26th World LP Gas Forum & 2013 AEGPL Congress drew 2,395 attendees from 64 different countries last month to London, England. Princess Anne, the second child of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, made a presentation to ceremonially open the event.

Two keynote speeches were delivered at the event. John Gummer, chairman of the United Kingdom’s Committee on Climate Change, focused on how energy represents a continuous battle between absolutism and diversity¬†in his speech. Kandeh Yumkella, the director general of the United Nations’ Sustainable Energy for All initiative, delivered a second keynote speech. Yumkella spoke about an urgent need to address a lack of access to modern energy for about 3 billion people globally. Yumkella pointed to LP gas as one of the best solutions available.

The World LP Gas Forum & 2013 AEGPL Congress also incorporated the Global Technology Conference, which drew more than 300 attendees. The World LP Gas Association typically calls for submission papers on innovative and technological ideas from around the world. Ten papers were selected this year among 22 that were submitted. The papers were presented at the Global Technology Conference.

Other educational sessions focused on U.K. markets and the impact of LP gas on a worldwide scale. A propane autogas roundtable and a session on LP gas in Africa were also held.

Next year’s World LP Gas Forum and AIGLP Conference will be held Oct. 28-30, 2014 in Miami, Fla. The 2014 AEGPL Congress will be held May 14-15, 2014 in Genoa, Italy. Learn more about these events at and
