Who we are
Energy UK is the trade association for the UK energy industry with over 100 members from established FTSE 100 companies to growing suppliers and generators, which now make up over half of our membership.
We work with our members, government, the regulator and wider stakeholders to champion a sustainable UK energy industry.
Energy UK never cold calls – calls from companies with a similar name are not connected to us.
