Following the lockdown in March 2020, the London Energy Club has continued to operate virtually, using Zoom webinars, and has continued with a series of well supported discussions on key energy issues.

We are able to look at global energy issues in great detail as a result of our world-wide Advisory Board, and our members, spread across the world.

The future programme is on the Events Page and summaries of previous meetings is in the Energy Intelligence section.

If you would like to discuss sponsoring a future event, please contact Fiona Watson:

An exclusive members-only gathering of government and corporate leaders from energy, investment and geopolitics,  The London Energy Club (LEC) has come about as a result of our identifying a need to capitalise on the geographical location and expertise uniquely offered by London.

As the centre of the world’s major energy, financial and geopolitical decisions, we are clear that London needs an influential and exclusive platform to bring key stakeholders and players together to share quality intelligence, insights and common business concerns on the current and future dynamics affecting policy choices and government decisions.

This need is more acute than ever, at a time when the energy sector is facing both significant opportunities and challenges around the world.


Based on the long-term success of the Bosphorus Energy Club as a ‘regional energy Davos’, the LEC is responding to this need by organising a series of interactive events each year on burning issues of common interest to its membership, showcasing a keynote speaker at each event who is an acknowledged international authority on the topic under discussion.

There will also be ad hoc roundtables and conferences with wider audiences, if desired by the members. The crux of the debate and the key messages will be analysed and distributed to members.


Mehmet Öğütçü, Alastair Watson and Fiona Watson set up the LEC to meet the perceived need in London for a top level forum to discuss energy issues. They are supported by a powerful Advisory Board, providing strategic guidance, a worldwide network and knowledge

The LEC membership comprises board-level executives in energy-focused companies from Europe, the US, Japan, Eurasia, the Middle-East, Africa and Latin America. Counterparts from the banking, investment, diplomacy, accountancy, law and consultancy sectors, where appropriate, are also invited to become members and special guests.


The LEC is independent, self-funded with membership fees and sponsorships, and conducts its events in confidence under the Chatham House rule. Its main objectives include:

  • Bridging energy businesses with peers and government representatives from around the world in a relaxed, discreet and central setting;
  • Inspiring global stakeholders on cross-border projects, transactions and facilitating dialogue;
  • Offering insightful intelligence and ideas on critical matters that affect its members;
  • Providing an informal Track II channel, early-warning signals and strategic blueprints for decision-makers from across the energy and finance sector.
