Energy Institute and British Energy Association merge to create UKWEC

The Energy Institute (EI) and the British Energy Association (BEA) have this week merged to create UKWEC – a UK Member Committee of the World Energy Council (WEC).

Working within the EI, UKWEC will offer members the chance to contribute to WEC research, attend seminars and network with the WEC’s global members.

WEC has high standing among the global multi-energy community. It is known for carrying out authoritative research and for its long-term energy projections. The EI and BEA partnership will provide the WEC with a greater body of expertise on UK energy issues.

“The creation of UKWEC reinforces the value of an extended worldwide energy network.”

UKWEC chairman Michael Gibbons

Chairman of UKWEC Michael Gibbons says the merger also strengthens the UK’s position in the international energy debate: “With energy policy high on the agenda of governments worldwide, UKWEC reinforces the value of this extended network.”

He added: “The launch also means increased resource and more opportunities for our members to engage and draw greater benefits from their involvement in WEC affairs.”

UKWEC will host their debut event − a discussion on ‘The changing politics of energy and climate policy’ − on 18 March in London. To join the debate or participate in future UKWEC activities visit the World Energy website.
