The Institute supports free market choices within a sound national and global policy framework.
An Advisory Council of energy industry associations (both members and invited non-members) will meet regularly. Its role will be to facilitate a mutual understanding of the issues confronting industry.
The Institute supports all existing energy industry organisations in Australia and the valuable service they provide to their members, which must be sustained.
The Institute liaises with APEC through the Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism on a range of international and domestic energy issues, and has a particular focus on the APEC Energy Working Group (EWG). The EWG, established in 1990 to provide specific strategic advice on the development of energy in the Asia Pacific Region, is one of ten working groups that report to APEC Energy Minister's meetings.
The Institute represents Australia in the APEC Energy Business Network (EBN). The EBN was established due to recognition that development of energy resources and markets in our region requires substantial input (in both capital and expertise) from the private sector. The key objective of the EBN is to act as an interface between government and business, that is - to provide a business perspective on energy related issues that can be considered through the APEC process.
Who we are
FEL is a collaborative of young professionals working in the energy industry. Each year in March, FEL hosts [Young] Energy State of the Nation, or [Y]ESON, a one day workshop to inspire and engage young energy professionals and develop a future energy vision for Australia.
What is [Y]ESON?
[Young] Energy State of the Nation is a workshop for young professionals to develop a future energy vision for Australia. It is a unique opportunity for young professionals to think creatively and develop a future vision for the industry they work in. The ideas from the workshop are presented to senior members of Australia's energy industry at the Energy Policy Institute's key event, ESON.
The next [Y]ESON will be held on the 17 March 2016 in Sydney.
Who can get involved?
FEL seeks a diverse cross section of skills and experiences for our events. Delegates from past workshops include professionals with policy, research & development, technical, consulting, commerce, financial and legal expertise.
The Energy Policy Institute does not cater for individual membership and recommends that young professionals interested in personal development consider joining the Australian Institute of Energy (www.aie.org.au).
The Institute works closely with the US Energy Association and has reciprocal membership rights.
