Mission and History
Formed by a merging of the Petroleum Equipment & Services Association, and the Association of Energy Service Companies, the Energy Workforce & Technology Council has a legacy of leadership and advocacy on behalf of energy technology and services companies in the energy supply chain.
Founded in 1933 as the American Petroleum Equipment Suppliers Association, PESA had been at the vanguard of the energy services sector with industry-recognized workforce development opportunities, and certification programs in leadership development, inclusion and diversity, and ESG.
Established in 1956 as the Association of Oilwell Servicing Contractors, AESC had operated through a network of national committees and local chapters to establish itself as a leading voice in safety, technology, environmental performance, insurance, government advocacy, and workforce training.
Empowering the energy workforce of the future.
We are transforming energy by giving our members the tools, information and representation they need to boldly enable a low-carbon future – safely, profitably and sustainably. We connect, educate, support and advocate for energy companies and workers of today and tomorrow. Our foresight and expertise elevate our industry with governments, industry partners and communities around the globe.
