eCom Scotland joins Offshore Energies UK to help transfer oil and gas knowledge to renewables sector
Digital workforce learning organisation eCom Scotland has teamed up with Offshore Energies UK to help ensure the knowledge and skills built up in the oil and gas industry are transferred to the renewables sector.
Formerly known as Oil and Gas UK, Offshore Energies UK is the trade association for the offshore energy industry. eCom has joined the organisation to help it shape the industry’s response to the transition away from oil and gas towards cleaner energy sources.
Susan Gearing, eCom’s energy sector specialist, said: “As eCom’s activity within this key sector of the UK’s and the world’s economies has grown in the last year or so, we want to support Offshore Energies UK, the UK energy industry’s leading association which informs, engages and champions the UK offshore oil and gas industry as part of a diverse energy mix.
“Offshore Energies UK’s skills transition forum focuses on sustainability issues and eCom believes that the transfer of knowledge and skills from oil and gas to renewables is going to be key over the next few years.
“Moreover, as an Offshore Energies UK member, there’s also the opportunity for us to help in developing and delivering industry-wide initiatives and programmes, as well as engage with governments and other organisations with a stake in the industry’s future.”
