About Energy UK
Energy UK is the trade association for the GB energy industry with a membership of over 100 suppliers, generators, and stakeholders with a business interest in the production and supply of electricity and gas for domestic and business consumers. Our membership covers over 90% of both UK power generation and the energy supply market for UK homes. We represent the diverse nature of the UK’s energy industry – from established FTSE 100 companies right through to new, growing suppliers and generators, which now make up over half of our membership.
Our members turn renewable energy sources as well as nuclear, gas and coal into electricity for over 27 million homes and every business in Britain. Over 680,000 people in every corner of the country rely on the sector for their jobs, with many of our members providing long-term employment as well as quality apprenticeships and training for those starting their careers. The energy industry invests over £12.5bn annually, delivers around £84bn in economic activity through its supply chain and interaction with other sectors, and pays £6bn in tax to HMT.
We have been accredited the Investors in People Standard, highlighting our committment to our workforce. Investors in People is the standard for people management. The standard defines what it takes to lead, support and manage people for sustained success. Find out more at Investors in People website.
What we do
We provide a source of expert advice on industry matters and work to enhance the industry's reputation with customers and with the communities it serves.
Energy UK provides a forum for its members to discuss relevant energy and related issues, and to engage on their behalf with a range of interested parties and individuals across the UK and EU including government’s, regulators, and consumer and environmental organisations to further energy regulation and policy. That could mean raising issues directly with the UK Government, hosting meetings with the industry regulator, Ofgem or engaging with the Scottish and Welsh Governments.
We also regularly engage with the European Union institutions on behalf of market participants in Internal Energy Market, and Irish Single Energy Market in Northern Ireland. With consumer advice devolved to the Scottish Government and the Welsh Government having devolved powers over certain generation capacity we work with both Governments to engage on our members interests.
