Renewable Energy Training Programs In Scotland.
It is up to each particular democratic country to choose the government and leadership that will best support the policies that the voters believe in. Sometimes the results of these elections come as a supprise to other countries or even to many of the voters in the country.
In the UK, the recent positive BREXIT vote came as a supprise to many. How this will ultimately play out is yet to be seen. When it comes to clean energy however, there are many market forces that are driving their adoption. In Scotland they started on a path toward being a leader in clean energy well before the BREXIT decision. Scotland has invested heavily in clean energy education and training.
Research and training projects that will help continue Scotland continue to capitalise on the vast potential of the renewable energy sector are set to benefit from Scottish Government funding of £300,000.
The Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult, a leading offshore renewable research centre, will receive £215,000 to develop a digital clone of their demonstration offshore wind turbine, opening up more industrial and academic research opportunities.
Virtual Renewable Energy Training Programs
The Energy Skills Partnership will receive £85,000 to support their virtual reality and work training programmes, ensuring that Scotland has the workforce and skills required by the energy sector in the future.
