TIDE (Tackling Inclusion and Diversity in Energy) is a cross-industry group to improve Equity, Diversity and Inclusion across the energy industry. ​

It is spearheaded by the ENA, the Energy Institute, Energy UK and Ofgem. 

The group’s priorities (right) were determined from input from Senior Leaders and EDI professionals at the industry’s annual EDI conference. ​

After an open application process, over 40 people are now involved across various working and delivery groups​. A key principle that will be maintained as activity progresses, is that the Taskforce will leverage existing activity and resources to supercharge EDI improvements across the sector, not duplicate.
