The future of energy and the planet

My Energy Future sets out a vision of an increasingly diverse and sustainable energy industry that will be a major factor in encouraging more young people to join the sector. Led by a team of Energy Influencers, it highlights career opportunities that will be flexible, inclusive and stimulating. It describes new opportunities that will combine digital innovation with new fields in subsea engineering, cutting edge science with the latest breakthroughs in robotics, and much more.

Bringing the future of energy to life 

With the low-carbon economy expected to grow 11% every year until 2030, the UK is likely to see 100,000 new energy jobs created, including 4,500 in new roles 'that do not currently exist’. This transformation will extend across all sectors of the energy industry, as we seek to create a sustainable energy mix for the future. 

My Energy Future aims to highlight these new opportunities to young people who could be part of the solution. It seeks to excite, stimulate and inform, while bringing the future of energy to life in a personal way so that more teenagers and graduates can imagine themselves playing a part in creating the energy mix the world will need to tackle the challenges of climate change and net zero.
