New Energy Workforce

28 March 2012 at 13:15 PM - University of Hull's Allam Lecture Theatre

Are the UK's low carbon industries heading for a "Skills Crunch"?

Skills gaps have already been identied in the UK's existing energy and process industries. As more renewables and low carbon industries are drawn to invest in the Humber, the demand for skilled and experienced workers in the region is set to increase.

Hear from Siemens, Mainstream RenewablePower, Vivergo Fuels,Centrica
Storage and Energy & UtilitySkills as they share industry's views of the key issuesand how they are being addressed:

  • What will the workforce of 2020 look like?

  • How will the workforce requirements of the renewables sector be met whilst balancing the needs of existing industry in the Humber region?

  • What can the emerging renewables sector learn from the Humber's existing process industries?

The challenges and opportunities presented by these skills gaps require businesses, education and training providers to act now both strategically and operationally, working together to deliver the workforce that our current and future industries will demand.

A limited number of sponsorship & exhibition opportunitiesare available at this event, for further information on this or to book your place please contact Bethan Clayton, membership & events manager at HCF, email bethan.clayton@hcfhumber.co.uk telephone 01469 552 841.
