Energy Institute


Energy Institute

The Energy Institute, commonly referred to as EI, is the main professional organization for the energy industry within the UK that promotes the safe, environmentally responsible and efficient supply and use of energy in all its forms and applications. The Energy Institute works to accomplish this through the services provided to individuals and organisations in membership to the benefit of society as a whole.

A Royal Charter membership organisation, the Energy Institute provides a wealth of expertise in energy matters, serving as a home for energy professionals and a scientific and technical reservoir for industry. It is licensed by the Engineering Council UK to offer Chartered, Incorporated and Engineering Technician status to engineers.

The EI has over 13,500 professional members in the UK and elsewhere throughout the world. It was formed in 2003 from a merger between the Institute of Petroleum and the Institute of Energy. The formation of the EI reflects the increasing convergence of various sectors of the energy industry.

The EI, as a successor to the Institute of Petroleum, shares some objectives with the American Petroleum Institute and distributes publications, technical standards, and electronic and online products. In particular the EI works with United Kingdom government departments such as BERR to produce research of concern to the energy industry.
