About this project

The Energy Barometer initiative includes a survey of professional members and a resulting annual report. The EI College is the randomly selected group of the EI's professional and pre-professional members who provide their views about UK energy issues. Up to half of the College is refreshed each year to give all Associate Members (formerly Graduates), Members and Fellows an opportunity to participate.

Watch our short video with Professor Jim Skea CBE FEI, Immediate-Past President, Energy Institute, who provides background and explains the project's objectives.

About this project

The Energy Barometer is an ongoing project, and we welcome your feedback and suggestions for future editions.
