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.

Our Executive Team

The Executive Committee guides the overall direction of the Society and manages its relations with both stakeholders and partners.

President: Damian Virchow

Damian is a second year BSc Finance student at the LSE. What especially interests him are new and innovative renewable technologies as sources for energy generation and storage, which is what he mainly focussed on last year for the Energy Fund and the Journal and which is an industry he wishes to develop further professional experience in.

Energy Journal

The Energy Journal is a biannual magazine focused on current energy affairs, published by our Society. It is edited by Simon Löschnauer and written by our members.


We are keen on expanding our relationships with partners from industry and the academic sphere to reap the mutual benefits of our collaboration.

By focusing on a wide range of energy issues, our members were able to establish ties to a multitude of industries. Our alumni embark on bright careers in companies including the Boston Consulting Group, the Cambridge Economic Policy Associates (CEPA) or the Carbon Trust, further strengthening the society’s network and underlining our importance as a bridge between university and the world of work.

Brand visibility on our marketing materials, distributing promotional material on your behalf or the chance to have your representatives participate in our events are only a few of the benefits our sponsors can enjoy.

As our partner, you will be able to profit from our highly skilled members and the top talents at the London School of Economics. Through combining high-quality education at one of the world’s most renowned institutions and our the historically strong performance in the professional world of our alumni, our members would prove an invaluable asset to any company upon their graduation.

We offer three sponsorship deals for our society: Bronze Sponsor (£200), Silver Sponsor (£500) and Gold Sponsor (£1000+), each having its respective advantages and features.

Previous joint projects and events with our partners included careers workshops, case studies, office visits and seminars. You can sponsor specific projects, such as the Energy Journal or the G3 Summit, as well.

Our students are tomorrow’s top economists, analysts and politicians – do not miss the opportunity to inspire the future leaders of the energy industry today.

We would be happy to discuss sponsorship proposals, partnerships and further enquiries via email ( or Facebook.
