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 to offer Chartered, Incorporated and Engineering Technician status to engineers and also by the Science Council and Society for the Environment to offer registration as Chartered Scientist and Chartered Environmentalist. The EI is an international organisation serving its members in around 80 countries.
The EI has over 14,000 members around 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 UK energy industry.
The EI publishes two membership magazines; Petroleum Review and Energy World. A range of supplements, including the Retail Marketing Survey, Future Skills, Future Energy, Future Fuels and Future Refining are produced to accompany these magazines throughout the year. The Journal of the Energy Institute publishes peer reviewed content relating to energy technology and theory.
The EI produces an extensive range of technical guidance, standards, and research reports for the energy sector. The technical work undertaken by the EI is defined by it Scientific and Technical Committee (STAC), funded by EI Technical Partners and coordinated by a number of technical sub-committees, supported by EI staff. The EI co-ordinates input into the work of national and international standards organisations (such as BSI, CEN and ISO) and works in cooperation with other associations and international partners (including API, OGP and ASTM). The aim of the technical work programme is to provide the international energy industry with cost-effective value adding knowledge on key current and future health, safety and environment issues.
The EI works in partnership with Shell to support and develop 'Hearts and Minds', and award winning toolkit intended to help organisations to improve their HSE performance.
