OSL helping to explore the Humber’s energy future
Local businesses and students can join a host of experts this November to find out more about the future possibilities for the energy sector in the region.
The Humber Energy Conference 2018 is hosted by the Energy Institute (EI) in association with event sponsors OSL Consulting Engineers, F.E.S. (EX) and Roxby Training and has attracted a range of speakers from around the industry. EI members, students and all companies involved in the energy sector are invited to attend.
The event, which takes place at the University of Hull’s Canham Turner Building from 8.30am until 3.15pm on 21 November, is themed Our Energy Future – The Challenges and Solutions and will reflect on key issues raised in the EI’s Energy Barometer 2018 – a report on the views of UK energy professionals.
“The conference will cover some of the major issues the energy sector currently faces, with particular focus on potential future skills shortages, the impact of energy policy and the importance of effective risk management,” explained Alastair Robertson, Energy Institute Humber Branch member and Director of OSL Consulting Engineers.
Expert speakers at the event include Alastair, OSL Risk Management's Elvis Hernandez, EI energy analyst Kinga Niemczyk, Phil Glover (Humber LEP), David Nash (ECITB), energy efficiency expert Ian Gibbs and chartered energy engineer Mike Tooke.
Other topics covered at the event will include energy policy, skills for energy, sustainable energy, biofuel and energy storage. There will be networking opportunities throughout the day and lunch is provided.
Alastair believes the conference will be a valuable opportunity for local businesses and future energy professionals. He said: “We are delighted to welcome our colleagues from EI HQ and a number of local speakers across industry, local authority and academia.
“In particular, we want to highlight the continued need for integration between local companies and students, and hope that the day will provide excellent opportunities to bring both groups together.”
