In welcoming the month of February, we realised that as new years go, we’re off to a great start, with new members joining us, and plenty of exciting events in the calendar for 2016.
In the work that we do, we represent and support a number of the industry ‘s leading players, assisting all of our members by offering them an informed voice across the industry. With our dedication to strengthening commercial ties and ensuring the best possible opportunities for businesses across the energy supply chain, we are always delighted to welcome new members.
In 2016, we have not only welcomed back our existing members but also a new member, UK leading law firm, Shepherd and Wedderburn, delivering legal advice within the Energy and Natural Resources sector.
Having been at the forefront of this sector for over 30 years, Shepherd and Wedderburn has experienced the transition from fossil fuel to renewable technologies, advising leading organisations within the sector on various innovative processes.
It’s always exciting to work with new organisations and in order to reach more and more energy professionals, it is extremely important that we continue to organise excellent networking events and conferences and provide our members with valuable market intelligence.
Last week saw the start of our 2016 Knowledge Exchange Meetings, with our first event, taking place in Glasgow with excellent speakers from Turner & Townsend and the Glasgow Science Centre.
Stephen Breslin, CEO of the Glasgow Science Centre discussed their new exhibition “Powering The Future” and we’re delighted to see SEA members getting involved and shining a spotlight on the discussion of our future energy supply. After a very successful evening, we are now looking forward to our next meeting, in Edinburgh on February 25th.
While these meetings are extremely important and valuable, they are not the only events we are looking forward to this year! On March 10th, we will hold our flagship event, the Power Scotland Conference, at the University of Strathclyde Technology and Innovation Centre. This conference will discuss new energy policy, ‘Reset’ and the impact it will have on the energy industry.
We look forward to meeting and exchanging knowledge with more and more industry professionals throughout the year and wish our members continued success for 2016!
