Prospect is the UK’s leading energy trade union. We represent a growing membership of more than 22,500 workers across the energy industry.

Our members work in energy generation, transmission, distribution, retail and research roles in all parts of the UK. They are the engineers, managers, and specialists keeping our energy system running and driving us towards a net zero future.

Prospect is a strong advocate for a secure and decarbonised energy system that supports good jobs in all parts of the country. We help our members win a better deal at work and campaign on issues affecting the sector – shaping the national debate on everything from industrial strategy to a just transition.
