Centre for Energy Policy Energy Conversations: Do we have the necessary skilled labour to enable a net zero economy?

  • Thursday, 27 February 2020 18:00 - 20:00

Venue: Strathclyde Business School-Stenhouse Wing


Following the publication of the UK Committee for Climate Change, both the UK and Scottish governments have accepted the proposed emissions targets.

Join the University of Strathclyde’s next Energy Conversation to explore the following:

- Do we have the necessary skilled labour in place to enable the transition to a net zero economy?

- What are the necessary changes required to develop and maintain the required labour force?

- Is the existing time sufficient and what are the timeframes within which we have to act if we are to achieve our goals?

- Considering the restrictive timeframe, is it worth investing in the development of skilled labour force or would it be preferable to recruit from abroad?

- What type of policies should be put in place to support the development of skilled labour?

Conversationalists include: Prof. Tom Scotto, Head of School of Governance and Public Policy, University of Strathclyde; Hazel Nolan, GMB Scotland; Roddy Scott, Sector Manager: Engineering, ESP Scotland; Prof. Karen Turner, Member of the Scottish Just Transition Commission , Director of the Centre for Energy Policy, University of Strathclyde.
