Birmingham Energy Society

EnergyBirmingham Energy Society (BES) engages students with all things Energy. Our objective is to provide an environment where students from any academic background can develop your knowledge on all aspects of the energy sector; from learning about future renewable energy technologies to understanding how governmental policies influence the energy sector, and how to invest into the energy market. 

The energy market is of growing importance, affecting every aspect of modern life and we hope to broaden your networking opportunities with industrial and academic leaders from across the sector.

By working with leading minds from Birmingham-based energy organisations as well as making connections with those from further afield, Birmingham Energy Society aim to: generate discussion about the past, present and future of energy, visit leading companies showcasing future energy solutions for the world’s growing population, and introduce members to an extensive network of academics and industrialists who are tackling the planet’s largest energy challenges to provide an entry pathway for those interested in a career in the energy sector. 

We run many activities throughout the year including guest speakers, networking events, site visits, and trips to energy-related events. Joining us will enable you to get to know other members of the Society and have some fun!
