YEP is an Energy UK initiative, launched in July 2013, in partnership with EY. To date, Energy UK has held several meetings of the Forum, with guest speakers discussing current issues in the energy sector. EY has been instrumental in establishing the Forum and continues to lead the debate around talent in the energy industry by partnering with Energy UK on this initiative.
A spokesman from EY said:
“The forums bring together young professionals from across the energy landscape and offer a valuable platform to discuss key issues and opportunities facing the industry, help career development, and provide the opportunity to engage with more senior energy leaders.”
Following on from initial success, a Steering Group has now been formed to deliberate upon the development of the YEP forum moving into 2014 and beyond. The Steering Group is formed from young professionals, representing participating Energy UK member companies.
YEP will hold it’s next event on 8th May in London so join their speakers as they discuss developing technologies, and how they will assist in securing energy supply with the strict decarbonisation targets the industry faces.
The YEP Forum helps build strong and supportive networks across the industry, providing opportunities to share experiences and learn from each other.
