Energy Voice and Deloitte presents Net Zero Workforce 2022.

Energy is going through seismic change. This will be driven by people – attracting new talent, and reskilling the current workforce. This Net Zero Workforce event will help draw the roadmap for change, inspire the next generation and shape the future of energy.

This hybrid conference, presented from the Chester Hotel in Aberdeen, will focus on inspiring the next generation of energy leaders and explore what the existing workforce needs to thrive in a post-transition landscape.

Together we will examine what new roles, skills and expertise are required for the Net Zero Workforce to emerge and thrive.

Session 1: NexGen Energy – 10:15 – 12:00

The first session will focus on how the energy industry attracts and retains talent as the transition progresses. This is the opportunity for energy companies to make their pitch for why the next generation of talent should join them and for our educators to present the pathway to a career in the industry.

Proposed topics include:

  • Generation Net Zero (skills & education required for the transition)
  • What would schools, colleges and universities be teaching?
  • Apprenticeships & scholarships
  • Career opportunities in energy (offshore wind, hydrogen, net zero supply chain)
  • Culture, diversity & inclusion
  • Entrepreneurship & opportunity
  • Energy Companies of the future
  • Digital workforce

Session 2: North Sea 2.0 – 13:30 – 15:00

The people currently working in our oil and gas industry will be vital to making the transition a success. Key to this will be the new skills, technologies and training requirements to mould the Net Zero Workforce. In this session, we will hear from the organisations supporting those in the industry as their roles evolve and understand the opportunities to reskill.

Proposed topics include:

  • Retraining and skilling up existing workforce
  • Utilisation of available human resource
  • Workforce configuration
  • Enhancing creativity & productivity
  • Switching to offshore wind
  • Gearing up for hydrogen
  • Remote working
  • Older workers in the net zero workforce
  • Investment in regional skillsets & resource
