What our members say
Energy UK has been instrumental in helping the industry navigate the choppy waters of 2022. In particular, they have done a great job at representing the industry at the highest level and in the media, and ensuring regular engagement with key stakeholders. Whilst it’s not always easy to bring together such a broad church, they strive to coordinate and support the membership in such a way to ensure the industry’s voice is clear, consistent and understood.Alice Barrs, Head of UK Policy & Public Affairs, RWE
Energy UK has been outstanding in representing the industry during one of the most turbulent times in the energy sector’s history. The energy security crisis and its impact on the UK and global economy has been profound and Energy UK has worked brilliantly with all parts of the energy industry to represent their views and work with Government and stakeholders in a fast moving and constantly changing environment. They have been very effective and worked tirelessly to support the energy industry, for which we are very grateful!Drax

Not only have they ensured the industry spoke with one voice and has been heard, but they have also had significant policy influence through a period of profound political instability. They have done all this whilst maintaining the reputation of the sector.National Grid
