The All Energy conference, and new Dcarbonise conference, were held again in Glasgow this year. They provided a great opportunity for the MSc GeoEnergy students to interact with industry leaders utilising the latest clean energy technologies, hear from government ministers on their plans to create appropriate frameworks and network with like-minded people.
Keynote speeches from First Minister Rt. Hon. Nicola Sturgeon MSP, Minister for Energy, Connectivity and the Islands Paul Wheelhouse MSP and Chief Executive of the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) Chris Stark were inspirational and created a positive vibe for the months and years ahead.
Events like these make you appreciate the applied nature of the MSc degree programme, and encourage us students that we have a prosperous and positive career ahead in championing the transition to net zero emission energy technologie.
I would encourage any student, from any degree programme, interested in energy in any form to attend next year – a truly worthwhile use of time.
