Training & Events
From conferences to panel discussions, our events provide opportunities for people in the industry to discuss the issues that matter, hear from experts and meet others working in the energy industry.
Our Breakfast Briefings are held throughout the year, and lead the conversation on areas of interest to our members and stakeholders. These range from policy-specific topics such as infrastructure planning, energy efficiency and the Review of the Electricity Market Arrangements to general discussions around the future of the energy market or the digitalisation of utilities.
These virtual or in-person panel events are free to attend and usually last 1 hour. Aimed at people working in industry, parliamentarians and wider stakeholders, leading experts open the session with their views before widening the discussion with audience Q&A.
The energy industry’s flagship event, will gather senior leaders and experts from across the industry to discuss and debate the most important issues facing our sector. The Annual Conference 2023 will see panel discussions on how energy matters to people, power and prosperity and how industry can deliver an affordable and secure net zero power system.
Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Energy (EDI) Conference
The industry’s annual EDI Conference is an opportunity to bring together senior leaders, changemakers, professionals and groups dedicated to improving EDI to share best practice, challenge one another and hear from companies and individuals that are leading the way. Initially an Energy UK initiative, the conference has grown over the years and is now an industry-wide collaboration with Ofgem and the ENA to drive forward improvements in EDI across the whole sector.
Young Energy Professionals (YEP) Awards
Our Young Energy Professionals Forum is a network for people with up to 10 years’ experience in the energy industry.
Each year, the YEP awards provide an opportunity to celebrate up-and-coming talent, recognising the leaders of the future across these categories: Consumer Focus, Rising Star, Team of the Year, Diversity and Inclusion, YEP of the Year and the new Audrey Gallacher Award for Excellence for those who have taken a non-academic route into the energy industry. Over 170 people attended the 2023 award ceremony, which included Helen Sanders of SSE Thermal and Chris Stark of the Climate Change Committee as keynote speakers, as well as a Comedian and Environmental Economist Dr Matt Winning as the Awards host. Sponsorship opportunities are available for 2024.
Lightning Bolt Talks
Energy UK’s LightningBolt talks bring together people from the worlds of energy, policy, and beyond to share exciting and innovative ways of using data to understand, explain and improve energy in the UK. The challenges the sector faces – from supporting consumers to achieving Net Zero – require fresh thinking and new ways of unlocking the power of information. To spread those ideas, the event hosts time-limited talks from a range of speakers across different policy areas.
