Renewal letter from Louise Kingham
EI members should have received their annual membership renewal information by now – if not, it should be delivered in a few days.
Alongside renewing membership, Louise Kingham is asking members if there are activities that they would like to see the EI getting involved in for the public good, or services that would be valuable in supporting them as energy professionals. Suggestions should be emailed to Louise at CEO@energyinst.org
Members who pay by Direct Debit will not receive a letter this year. Instead they will simply receive a renewal email confirming the details of how much the fee is and when it will be taken.
Anyone who has recently changed their address or other contact details should update us online or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Asking you to renew your membership and pay your annual subscription is an important moment in the year for me to sense-check that the Energy Institute is continuing to deliver.
I hope you are continuing to feel the direct benefits of your membership, be it the professional recognition that sets you apart, the good practice that helps you do your job safely and efficiently, the wide-angle view we provide on the world of energy, or the new services and su pport provided by our benevolent fund.
Alongside these core services, I’m feeling confident that 2019 is shaping up to be a year of change at the EI. New industry standard guidance for upstream and downstream oil and gas… Vital new health and safety work in onshore wind and battery storage… Digital innovation with our new To olbox app and the web-based Energy Barometer… Sustainability conferences in the Middle East and Africa… In fact, there’s too much to mention here.
But there’s still much more to our ambition that energy is better understood, managed and valued. As the science and impacts of climate change become ever clearer, and with the Paris Agreement coming into effect in 2020, the EI is resolved to be at the head of the radical change our ind ustry needs to bring about.
We’ve started scoping out new work in carbon capture and storage, hydrogen and integrated networks; we’re taking a new approach to IP Week, with an overarching focus on climate change; and our first podcast series is on the way. More of all that in due course…
Finally, I’d like to thank you for where you’ve been able to get involved and make a contribution. If you have a view about activities that you’d like to see the EI involved in for public good or services that would support you as an energy professional, please email me on CEO@energyinst.org.
This is your Energy Institute. The governing Council, staff team and I look forward to your continued involvement.
Louise Kingham OBE FEI
Chief Executive, Energy Institute
