Future Energy Leaders

Who we are

FEL is a collaborative of young professionals working in the energy industry. Each year in March, FEL hosts [Young] Energy State of the Nation, or [Y]ESON, a one day workshop to inspire and engage young energy professionals and develop a future energy vision for Australia.

What is [Y]ESON?

[Young] Energy State of the Nation is a workshop for young professionals to develop a future energy vision for Australia. It is a unique opportunity for young professionals to think creatively and develop a future vision for the industry they work in. The ideas from the workshop are presented to senior members of Australia's energy industry at the Energy Policy Institute's key event, ESON.

The next [Y]ESON will be held on the 17 March 2016 in Sydney.

Who can get involved?

FEL seeks a diverse cross section of skills and experiences for our events. Delegates from past workshops include professionals with policy, research & development, technical, consulting, commerce, financial and legal expertise.


The Energy Policy Institute does not cater for individual membership and recommends that young professionals interested in personal development consider joining the Australian Institute of Energy (www.aie.org.au).
