Welcome to the UK Energy hub

Energising the UK

At EY we understand energy. As the UK heads toward a low-carbon economy, managing energy needs in a complex and somewhat erratic sector has become increasingly critical to business success.

That's why we've developed our UK Energy hub – a home for our latest informed, independent thinking in one place from our energy teams from all corners of the energy and energy resources landscape – Power & Utilities, Renewables, Oil & Gas, Mining & Metals, Water and Energy & Environmental Finance.
