Energy Community of Practice

As part of ICE’s Learning Society role this Community of Practice aims to be the leading source of expert civil engineering knowledge for practitioners with respect to our global clean energy needs.

The Community of Practice (COP) seeks to support ICE’s knowledge programmes, insights and policy development for areas include nuclear, renewables, fossil fuel generation, electricity distribution and energy policy.

Our members' expertise and knowledge supports the development of events and learning resources for civil engineers and other infrastructure professionals.

COP Leadership & Guidance

The COP is coordinated by a Leadership Group formed of industry experts, led by Darren McClure.

Join the community

ICE needs your help to help us build and develop its expert technical and practical knowledge.

As an expert member of the community, you will be able to share knowledge, thoughts and experiences with like-minded professionals and collaborate with others to help achieve the community’s vision.

COP members do not have to be ICE members, but they must have appropriate knowledge skills and expertise in alignment with the vision of the relevant community.

Communication between the COP shall be facilitated through a dedicated Microsoft Teams group, providing the opportunity to communicate with ICE and professionals with a shared interest in the COP’s objectives.

If you are committed to supporting the development of knowledge, standards, insights, policy and guidance for this area, then we want to hear from you.
