EI’s technical collaboration programme pivots into energy transition


Collaboration work between more than 60 global energy companies, accessed across 120 countries and under the stewardship of the Energy Institute (EI), is playing a growing role in accelerating the transition to a low carbon future, the programme’s Technical and Innovation prospectus shows today.

As International Energy Week kicks off, the prospectus details in excess of 60 technical good practice publications issued over the past year as part of the EI’s Technical and Innovation programme, resulting in 20,000 downloads across 120 countries globally.

As the custodian of independent expertise, the EI brings companies from all parts of the energy industry together to work in collaboration with regulators, academia and wider stakeholders for the benefit of all, and to help the rapidly changing energy sector move towards a safer, lower carbon future.

The new prospectus sets out the achievements and benefits of the industry working together including a growing portfolio of work in onshore and offshore wind, solar, power systems, carbon capture and storage and hydrogen.

Chair of the EI’s Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee (STAC), Trustee of the Energy Institute, and Equinor’s Vice President of New Business and Investments, Lisa Rebora FEI said:

“The Energy Institute’s expansive Technical and Innovation work programme is the memory and heart of our industry’s health, safety and environmental work.

“Used extensively across the energy sector, and around the world, the programme is devised by industry and for industry and has pivoted to supporting the vital transition to lower carbon and electrified energy solutions in response to climate change.

“Technical and Innovation membership represents real value for partners – all helping to unlock a safer, more sustainable energy future for all.”

Energy Institute CEO Dr Nick Wayth CEng FEI commented:

“The energy transition is the biggest challenge of our time, and the Technical and Innovation programme is driving tangible change to tackle this.

“The prospectus highlights the vital role the Energy Institute provides in stewarding industry guidance, as well as the sizeable value add and return on investment for our industry partners.”

Working to accelerate the energy transition, the Energy Institute has a portfolio of over 750 good practice guidance titles, across three overlapping areas: the energy transition; health, safety and environment; and fuel quality and management.

Leveraging over 100 years of industry knowledge and expertise, the EI’s good practice guidance supports operations in energy technologies such as CCUS, hydrogen, offshore and onshore wind, power systems, and solar.

Membership of the Technical and Innovation work programme is tailored to fit organisations, split across two tiers – Technical Partner and Technical Company Member. Membership allows companies to actively participate in the work programme, helping set industry standards and benefitting from comprehensive resources that ensure the highest standards of health, safety, environmental protection, sustainability and operational efficiency are met.
