London and Home Counties

Welcome to the London and Home Counties branch page

The London and Home Counties Branch is part of the energy institute acting as a hub for energy professionals in the Greater London Area and Home Counties.

Mission

Responding to the climate emergency while meeting the energy needs of the world’s growing population is one of the greatest challenges of our age. We need more, cleaner, better-managed energy - and fast. Our mission is to bring together expertise to tackle this global challenge by organising regional technical programmes of events for our members and guests.

Why engaging with the branch?

Professionals in energy have changed the world before and now we are changing it again. By engaging with the branch you will not only contribute to tackling the global energy challenge but also:

- Keep up to date with industry

- Build your professional and social networks

- Find support outside of your work environment

Get involved

We are often looking for volunteers to help develop the branch and organise a range of events. Please get in touch to find out more. Your support is invaluable.
