Durham Heat Hub is delighted to present our next FREE seminar on Training and Skills for Netzero on Thursday 25th February 10-12.

The recent Skills for Jobs White paper aims to deliver a Lifetime Skills Guarantee and sets out a blueprint for a post-16 education system that will ensure everyone, no matter where they live or their background, can gain the skills they need to progress in work at any stage of their lives.

With the Government committed to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050, the UK must deploy a range of technologies, including carbon capture and hydrogen, to decarbonise the industrial and energy sectors. Existing energy sectors will be encouraged to radically change their practices and technologies and old skills will be replaced with greener approaches, requiring an understanding of new technologies, service options and digital approaches.

The heating and cooling industry will play a critical role in hitting our climate change targets.  Are we ready? and what do we need to do to prepare and prosper from the green revolution?  Are these reforms bold enough and how will they support the UK aims of Net Zero 2050?

Our programme includes speakers from; North East LEP, The Heat Academy, Enginuity, Association for Decentralised Energy and Durham University, who will explore the current challenges in meeting the skills and training needs for Net Zero and provide their views on what else is needed to ensure a green, fair and equitable transition for all.
