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 Graduates, Members and Fellows an opportunity to participate.

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


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