Please support your member associations events in 2020
We realise that this is a time of immense change for everyone in the industry. As your member associations, we are working together to support each other and deliver our event programmes which have been postponed to the autumn.
Please prioritise events run by your member associations which are designed by the industry for the industry. This will allow us to reinvest directly in the future success of the energy sector, including our work with Government to ensure the right policies are in place for the industry to continue to grow.
Until we can meet you in person at our events, please do contact your member association for support and advice in relation to the Coronavirus pandemic. You can also visit the Covid-19: support for businesses website.
