London and Home Counties YPN

Welcome to the London and Home Counties YPN page

The YPN is part of the Energy Institute acting as ‘the hub for tomorrow’s energy leaders.’ Our mission is to draw together cross-discipline energy professionals from diverse backgrounds to learn about and discuss key energy issues.  We provide a platform from which they can grow and develop whilst building strong multidisciplinary networks, spanning the whole energy sector. 

The London and Home Counties YPN was set up in 2013 and has gone from strength to strength. We organise seminars, panel discussions and networking events to bring together young professionals from all sectors of the industry. All professionals are welcome to attend our events. In most cases they are free to attend but have limited availability and places are issued on a first come first served basis.
