About us

Energy UK is the trade association for the energy industry with over 100 members spanning every aspect of the energy sector – from established FTSE 100 companies right through to new, growing suppliers and generators, which now make up over half of our membership.

We represent the diverse nature of the UK’s energy industry with our members delivering nearly 80% of the UK’s power generation and over 95% of the energy supply for the 28 million UK homes as well as many businesses.

The energy industry invests £13bn annually, delivers nearly £30bn in gross value added on top of the nearly £100bn in economic activity through its supply chain and interaction with other sectors, and supports over 700,000 jobs in every corner of the country.

Energy UK does not cold call members of the public.  You should never give out personal information to people who call out of the blue. It is always best to independently verify any numbers of details you are given - by checking with directory inquiries, a recognised website or from details on your energy bill – before calling back if you are then sure of the caller’s identity.

Some organisations have been calling under our name to sell energy-related products. This is not in any way authorised by Energy UK and any calls should be referred to the Information Commissioner's Office.
