Young Energy Professionals

Energy UK’s Young Energy Professionals Forum is a place for the next generation of energy industry professionals to meet, network and spread knowledge.

What type of events? The Young Energy Professionals Forum runs quarterly events, discussing topical issues on and off the news agenda - getting everyone talking. The Forum also organises; site visits where attendees can take a look inside a real life working power station; or attendees can hear from industry leaders who offer their top tips for success via our popular mentoring programme, a new addition to the Forum. 

Who attends? Our events attract a wide range of professionals from across different roles within the energy industry. Our events are open to all Young Energy Professionals (10 years in industry or less), students or those who just have an interest in the industry. 

Our topics?
For each event we choose topics which are relevant and likely to create debate. We select industry leading speakers to give talks on these topics before opening up the floor to debate the issues further. To date we’ve discussed Hinkley point C, fuel poverty, innovation, customer satisfaction, National Grids Balancing Services and energy and infrastructure skills.
