News and events Updates from the EIC

About the EIC

Established in 1943, the EIC is the leading trade association for companies working in the global energy industries.

Our member companies, who supply goods and services across the oil and gas, power, nuclear and renewables sectors, have the experience and expertise that operators and contractors require. As a not-for-profit organisation with offices in key international locations, the EIC’s role is to help members maximise commercial opportunities worldwide.


EIC LIVE events

After 24 months of online conferences and virtual exhibitions, the EIC is delighted to return to in-person events. It has been thrilling to host and participate in physical events over the past few months, making connections face-to-face in a safe and COVID-19-friendly environment. We look forward to welcoming members, energy professionals and organisations to our series of events throughout the year. The EIC Energy Exports Conference is just around the corner, and our international trade team is excited to be organising and managing UK Pavilions for global events, including Gastech 2022 in Italy and WindEnergy Hamburg in Germany.

External affairs

During the past four months, we have had success with the Nuclear Energy (Financing) Act 2022 receiving Royal Assent. We represented members’ views at formal consultation and at Committee Hearing stage, so were pleased to see this pass. We also worked with members to respond to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy’s consultation on Supply Chain Plans. 

With UKESC, we have focused on discussions around finance and development and carbon capture, utilisation and storage planning. Please see our website for more details and how to get involved.

The team has expanded recently with an External Affairs Advisor and a Communications Advisor, focusing on outward media, joining the EIC.

As we respond to consultations, work with government and raise awareness of political and policy issues, we look forward to carrying on working with you.


Middle East Operational Renewables EICAsset Map Report

Development for renewable energy in the Middle East has been slow during the past 12 months, as delays in achieving project completion across all energy sectors in the region have been significant.

Due to the global pandemic outbreak, governments across the Middle East have imposed various rules and guidelines for working at construction sites, such as social distancing to keep employees safe and travel bans into their respective countries.
