Technical activities

Our aim is to provide the energy industry with cost-effective, value-adding knowledge on key current and future issues.

How do we do this?

The Energy Institute undertakes a focused technical work programme that comprises original independent research and investigations, technical responses to legislation and regulation, workshops and seminars, to provide the international industry with information and guidance on relevant technical issues. Although some of this work is funded, a significant proportion is only achieved through the voluntary efforts of members from industry to whom the Institute is very grateful.

The technical work undertaken by the EI is defined by the Scientific and Technical Committee (STAC) and coordinated by a number of technical sub-committees supported by EI staff.

The results of the work are made available through our technical publications and events such as conferences and workshops. For the purpose of disseminating guidance and good industry practice as widely as possible, some publications have been made available to download for free.

In addition to the above work, the Technical staff facilitate and coordinate UK input into the work of national and international non-EI committees in organisations such as BSI, ISO and CEN.
