Shaping the Energy Debate

The London School of Economics Students’ Union Energy Society is the student-led organisation specialising in the energy sector here at the LSE. A recognised member of the Collegiate Energy Association, our mission is to provide our members with the foundation, skills, and relationships to develop successful careers within the energy sector. We organise regular lectures and specialist talks on energy-related fields as well as an annual energy conference with the aim of shaping the debate in the energy field both within and outside the school’s realm.

We are open to students and staff of LSE as well as students and professionals elsewhere. By bringing students with interests in the Energy industry together, the Society has established an alumni network within major energy and commodity companies, finance and consultancy firms, international research centers and numerous other relevant market players.

Vice-President: Glendon Giam
