Latest news and other content from the EI

The world of energy is at once fascinating and controversial, global and local, old and new. The Energy Institute is working to reinforce the role of evidence and expertise at the heart of the public debate about energy. Through original research, events and engagement work we gather and articulate the views of our professional membership, which spans the global energy system.

In our News Centre you will find the latest news and other content from the EI. You can connect with us via social media, access our online resources and get in touch directly with our Communication Team.
