Fellow of the Energy Institute (FEI) is our highest level of membership

It is a title created by the energy sector for the energy sector, recognising professionals whose contribution makes a real difference.

Fellows come from all parts of the energy sector, are all ages and from all backgrounds. They can be

  • thought leaders and influencers, innovators and commentators
  • talent nurturers who go out of their way to help others achieve their goals, connect people in their area or upskill
  • advancers of knowledge, research or policy
  • champions of particular aspects of the sector, groundbreakers or grafters…

Fellows come from all parts of the energy sector – they have a passion for achieving the best for energy and wider society.

Sound like you? Why not apply? Or if you know someone who you think fits the bill, and deserves recognition, make a nomination.

Whoever they are, they will have a passion for achieving the best for the energy sector and wider society, have made a contribution which is positive, distinctive, significant and/or sustained - and show they are prepared to ‘give back’ and play a key role in helping the EI or the wider energy sector move forward.

How do I apply?
