2012 Energy Industries Overview

A POPULAR event which gives people a greater understanding of the diverse energy industry is set to take place in Aberdeen later this month with a number of experts from major operating and service companies, academia and trade associations gathering to share their knowledge.

The University of Aberdeen’s annual Energy Industries Overview: Oil and Gas, Renewable Energy event is co-sponsored by Oil & Gas UK and Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG). The three-day CPD (continual personal development) Training course, which starts on April 10 at the University’s King’s College Conference Centre, attracts people from across the UK including students and industry professionals..

Among companies that participate in the event are Shell U.K. Limited and Total E&P UK Ltd, Petrofac and Active Sustainable Energy Systems while representatives from Scottish Government and Scottish Renewables will also speak.

The event, which is aimed at industry newcomers as well as those looking to broaden their overall knowledge, provides an insight into the oil and gas and renewables’ industries as well as the interaction between the two. Delegates learn about how the industries function in terms of policy, taxation, regulation and technology.

With the energy industry underpinning both the local and UK economy as well as playing a strategic role in helping the Government to achieve ambitious sustainable energy targets, the event also provides a vital platform for delegates to find out about the diverse range of long-term career opportunities in the industry including how they can transfer their skills.

Professor Paul Mitchell, director of the Institute of Energy Technologies at the University of Aberdeen, said: “The University, which is home to the Scottish European Green Energy Centre headquarters, is the logical provider of this important training and familiarisation opportunity. This ensures we are at the forefront of international developments, while at the same time we can offer wide opportunities for professional career development through a range of courses from subsea engineering to oil and gas law.

“The event allows participants to meet academics who are engaged in teaching, research and industry collaborations across the whole spectrum of energy science and technology, from advanced exploration for hydrocarbons through our ExploHub, to the pioneering software vital to the success of the proposed North Sea supergrid.”

Paul Dymond, operations director at Oil and Gas UK, chairs the oil and gas session which will include a debate on energy policy and industry practices. The debate will feature Prof Mitchell, AREG renewables champion Iain Todd, Scottish Government senior policy advisor Neal Rafferty, and Oil & Gas UK energy policy manager David Odling.

Mr Dymond said: “Energy Industries Overview attracts an eclectic mix of industry delegates who are keen to broaden their knowledge and gain a deeper understanding of other sectors while students from four different faculties will provide a further interesting perspective on the energy industry.

“The theme of this year’s debate is extremely topical. It will compare and contrast how the challenges and expectations of the oil and gas and renewable energy industries are being met.”

Iain Todd, of AREG, chairs the Energy Industries Overview renewable energy sessions. He said: “As the renewable energy industry continues to grow and evolve, in terms of both political and economic importance, it is generating significant career and business opportunities.

“Aberdeen City and Shire is already carving out a leading position within this industry by successfully applying its long-established oil and gas expertise into renewables. Delegates at the event will therefore get a valuable overview of the renewables industry and its all-encompassing sectors from leading experts in their respective fields.”

    The trick to these systems is the ertatiebs that you are charging. And with more panels, the ertatiebs charge faster. I used to drive forklifts that used a massive lithium battery that would run that lift for 12 hours straight all the while lifting extreamly heavy objects. The company used solar panels to charge the ertatiebs in a massive battery bank.

  2. Il est certain qu’il existe quelque part et comme disait une de mes amies « une chose est sure il est déjà né ».Je viens très bientôt ajouter un article et annoncer l’atelier.Bisous.
