What's new in Knowledge

Welcome to the latest update from the Energy Institute (EI) Knowledge Service, your hub for energy information. 

Get up to speed on topical issues with Energy Insights 

Over the past few months we have added several new topics to our Energy Insights which provide a current outlook on what is happening in energy. 

The latest Energy Insight, Energy efficiency policies and regulations in the UK looks at energy consumption in the UK and how, with increased energy efficiency and careful management, consumption has fallen by 10% since 2002 in spite of an increasing population.
Other recent topics covered in Energy Insights include:

Petrochemicals and the role of oil companies 
Energy in the Horn of Africa (Somalia, Somaliland, Puntland and Djibouti)
Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR)
Wave energy
Geopolitics and the renewable energy transition
Decommissioning offshore oil and gas

Retail Marketing Survey

For the first time in its 47 year history, first published in Petroleum Review in 1971, our Retail Marketing Survey is now completely digital and available freely on our Road Fuels Collection on the Knowledge website.

The Library and its collections

Offering, as we do, quiet work space in Central London, we have welcomed many visitors to the library over the past months. Remember we have a huge collection of energy related material available both here in hard copy and, as we are only able to open during office hours, an even larger collection accessible through our eLibrary. For those involved in any research, this is an invaluable resource providing a vast collection of both journal and book material, much of it full-text, open 24 hours a day, every day, anywhere. 

Recent additions to the eBook collection:

We add to this collection twice each year: in spring and autumn. What subjects or titles would you like to see added? Let us know!

Below are the latest additions to the eBook collection giving the eLibrary a total of 188 items; a full list can be found here.
