The Energy Chamber of Trinidad and Tobago is the representative organization for the Trinidad & Tobago oil, gas, petrochemical and heavy industrial sectors. We are based in the Point Lisas Industrial Estate - a world class hub of the dynamic energy and heavy industrial sector in Trinidad and Tobago.

Membership of the Energy Chamber is, however, drawn from across the country and beyond. Founded in 1956, the Energy Chamber is an independent a-political organization governed by a Board elected annually by the membership. The Energy Chamber has a strong tradition of vigorously and effectively representing our members' interests and for significantly contributing to national development.

The Energy Chamber is governed by a seventeen member Board, made up of sixteen volunteers elected from amongst the membership of the Chamber and the President/Chief Executive Officer (a full-time employee of the Chamber). These members are elected by the membership prior to and presented at the Annual General Meeting (AGM). There is an Executive Committee of the Board which comprises a Chairman, three Deputy Chairmen, Secretary, Treasurer and President/Chief Executive Officer. The Executive positions, with the exception of the President/Chief Executive Officer, are elected by the Board after the AGM as stipulated in the by-laws. The other nine Board members are elected for a three year term, for a maximum of six years. The immediate past Chairman remains a member of the Board for three years after his term as Chairman ends.  The by-laws contain further details on this process.

The day-to-day running of the Energy Chamber is the responsibility of an Executive Office, managed by the President/Chief Executive Officer. Chamber members, the Board of Directors and the Executive Office are bound by the by-laws of the Energy Chamber.
