The 2021 WGECO meeting was held entirely by remote meetings due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. Participation was strong, however, the remote setting limited the amount of work which could be completed. An initial plan to take up five TORs was made, but considering member availability and interest, only Tors A and C were addressed this year. WGECO decided to keep all of the Tors for 2022, and will consider developing additional Tors from Tor C (Horizon scanning). Much of this will depend on the current state of COVID-19 and member availability in 2022.
