Graham White
International Energy Policy Advisor


Graham retired from the UK civil service in July 2011. Immediately prior to this he was Director of International, EU and Energy Security policy. The directorate was responsible for setting the strategic direction for policy on international energy security and low carbon technology, European energy and climate change policy, energy resilience (including emergency planning), and domestic (UK) energy security (particularly gas markets and infrastructure policy).

As Director of International Energy Policy, Graham was the UK’s representative on a number of international bodies, including the International Energy Agency’s Governing Board for 5 years and during this time also chaired the IEA’s Oil Market Group.

Since retiring Graham has continued to work in the energy field and has provided advice to the UK Government, the International Energy Agency, the International Energy Forum, the British Institute of Energy Economics and a number of UK universities.

Before working on energy policy and analysis Graham worked in a number of Government departments including the Department of Trade and Industry, the Treasury, Cabinet Office, Inland Revenue and National Statistics Office. He was educated at Sheffield University where he gained a BA in Mathematics and Statistics and an MSc in Statistics.
In January 2011 Graham was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) by Her Majesty the Queen in recognition of his contribution to international energy policy.
