Who We Are

The Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit is a non-profit organisation that supports informed debate on energy and climate change issues in the UK.

Climate change presents important challenges and opportunities to Britons in the decades ahead, while the choices we make on energy have implications for society, the economy and the climate system. We believe that debates on these issues should be underpinned by evidence, and involve the full range of stakeholders.

We support journalists, parliamentarians and other communicators with accurate and accessible briefings on key issues, and work with individuals and organisations that have interesting stories to tell, helping them connect to the national conversation.

Our Advisory Board reflects the breadth of society’s interest in energy and climate issues. It includes climate scientists, energy policy experts and economists, as well as a range of other stakeholders including MPs and Peers.

All of our funding comes from philanthropic foundations and donors. We gratefully acknowledge support from the European Climate Foundation, the Meliore Foundation, Quadrature Climate Foundation and the Environmental Funders Network.

ECIU embraces equality, diversity and inclusion. A diverse workforce leads to clearer decision making and a stronger, more impactful organisation. Not only do we want our team at ECIU to be inclusive, we want to help make our sector more welcoming and accessible to all.

We're striving to be more inclusive in how we recruit staff, how we engage with partner organisations and how we communicate externally. We have made commitments as partners in the Diverse Sustainability Initiative and are working with Inclusive Recruiting. We welcome advice and challenges to how we operate.
