Malcolm Brinded CBE FREng FEI has taken on the role of president-elect at the Energy Institute (EI). 

Malcolm, who joined the EI’s Council in 2013, will succeed Professor Jim Skea as president in 2017.   

“Malcolm will make a terrific EI president,” said Jim Skea.

“His knowledge, enthusiasm and vision will give further momentum to the EI’s growing impact as an authoritative and respected contributor to the energy debate.”

“Jim will be a hard act to follow,” added Malcolm. “With the Energy Barometer in particular, he’s taken the EI to a new level in demonstrating its value.”

Also joining the team as vice presidents are Dr Bernie Bulkin, director of Ludgate Investment,   Vivienne Cox who has held a number of senior executive roles at BP, Steve Holliday formerly CEO of National Grid and Ceri Powell, global head of exploration at Shell.

“With Vivienne, Steve and Ceri also joining Council, which already features a creative and dynamic team, it will be an exhilarating task to capture the huge amount of expertise and wisdom sitting around the table in order to steer the work of the EI,” said Malcolm.

Malcolm was main board executive director of Royal Dutch Shell for a decade until retirement in April 2012. His last role in a 38-year career at Shell was as executive director for upstream international. He was previously executive director for global exploration and production from 2004 to 2009, managing director of Royal Dutch Shell from 2002, and Shell UK chairman from 1999. He is currently chairman of the Shell Foundation, a non-executive director of Network Rail, CH2M HILL and BHP Billiton.
