The Energy Industries Council (EIC) is a not-for-profit organisation limited by guarantee, constituted as a private limited company that is wholly owned by its members but not having any shares. It is governed by a Board of up to 20 Directors elected by the members and two appointed Directors (the Chairman and Chief Executive). The EIC has an Honorary President who advises and sponsors the organisation on Parliamentary and Governmental matters.
The Board of Directors meets quarterly and controls the company, delegating powers as necessary to the permanent staff through the Chief Executive. It determines the EIC’s strategy and policy as well as overseeing the operation of the EIC and its financial viability. The Chief Executive is supported by a staff of around 50 who are based across the London, Aberdeen, Billingham, Rio de Janerio, Houston, Dubai, Singapore and Beijing offices.
The EIC was established in 1943 as the Council of British Manufacturers of Petroleum Equipment (CBMPE); the registered name was changed in 1981 to Energy Industries Council (EIC) to reflect the expansion of activities to cover the whole energy sector. The EIC currently has over 600 members who collectively employ over a million people and generate over £100 billion in revenues out of their UK-based operations.
