We hold a vast array of publications which are categorised both by topics, such as aviation, hydrocarbon management and energy management, and sectors, such as pipelines, road tankers and refineries.

Our technical work programme

Our publications are outputs of the EI Technical programme which aims to provide industry with cost effective, value-adding knowledge on key current and future issues within the energy sector. The programme is set and steered by the EI’s Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) who deliver on their aims through publications, workshops and by facilitating technical discussion between different sectors of industry, including regulators.

Importantly, the technical work of the EI is funded by, and developed in association with, EI partners. Additional support is also provided by a diverse range of organisations, including industry regulators such as the UK Health and Safety Executive, Environment Agency, Maritime and Coastguard Agency, and other bodies such as the Global CCS Institute. Work is also often undertaken in partnership with trade associations such as the Carbon Capture and Storage Association, UKPIA, and UK Oil and Gas, and with standards setting bodies such as ASTM, BSI, CEN, API and ISO.
