The Energy Institute is the not-for-profit chartered professional membership body bringing together expertise to tackle urgent global challenges. Responding to the climate emergency while meeting the energy needs of the world’s growing population calls for energy to be better understood, managed and valued. This ambition is at the heart of our social purpose.
We are a global, independent network of professionals spanning the world of energy, convening and facilitating debate, championing evidence and sharing fresh ideas, giving voice to issues of concern and where necessary challenging the industry we work with.
Energy professionals – our members – of all ages, genders, backgrounds and disciplines look to us for the knowledge, skills and good practice they need to pursue impactful careers in this vital, fast-evolving field. As a safe collaborative space for industry, academia and policy makers, we deliver standards, guidance, training and qualifications that raise the bar in operations in almost all areas of the energy system: upstream and downstream oil and gas, onshore and offshore wind power, fugitive methane reduction, battery storage, hydrogen, CCUS and integrated networks.
In health and safety, energy management and related behaviour change methods we equip professionals in diverse fields with the essentials needed to protect people, assets and the environment, and to get the most efficient use out of all energy consumed. Our products and services are continuously refined to keep pace with and support the changes under way in our field.
Professionals in energy have changed the world before and now they are changing it again. The EI exists to support them and anyone who wants to better understand or contribute to tackling these urgent global challenges.
Process Safety Management Framework
The manufacture, handling and use of dangerous substances are major hazards – not only to workers but also to members of the public nearby, assets and the environment.
Our process safety guidance documents consider these major hazards and assess how to control them; in particular, by containing dangerous substances and pressurised systems and keeping them under control.
These publications are intended to contribute to effective process safety management across the entire industry and form a core part of our Lessons.
