Angus Energy Hub

AN EXCITING new partnership between Angus College and the energy industry was launched last Wednesday to boost skills and business opportunities in Angus.

The Angus Energy Hub was launched at the Renewable Energy Opportunities for Angus Businesses seminar.

The Hub will help people living in Angus through enabling better access to advice, energy saving initiatives and new technologies which can reduce energy bills. The event was targeted at local businesses in order to enable them to develop the skills and capacity to be more energy efficient and build new business opportunities across the energy sector.

Next year there will be awareness raising events and training courses that will be coordinated through the Hub. Plans are also being developed for an ‘Energy Curriculum Centre’ which will provide industry specific training to support the growth of the biomass, oil and gas and renewable industries in the north east.
