The waste-to-energy facility is due to begin operation in 2018. The building was completed with University of Hull input in the hopes of increasing access to education about renewable energy.

A key element of the new, £200m energy from waste power plant ‘Energy Works’ has been completed, paving the way for new research into renewable energy technologies.

Spencer Group, a multi-disciplinary engineering business, has steered the Energy Works scheme in Hull from concept to delivery and the company is now playing a part in construction of the vast green energy facility.

Up to 150 Spencer Group staff and sub-contractors have been delivering the £35m package of civil and structural works for the green energy power plant. The team has now completed the Energy Academy, a learning, research and development facility created in partnership with the University of Hull.

Apprenticeships have bipartisan support as a promising alternative to bring young people into the workforce, but they are still only a tiny fraction of total job openings in the United States. In this report, co-authored with the Managing the Future of Work Project at Harvard Business School, we assess the potential to expand this approach. Apprenticeships are much more common in Europe than the United States. There has been considerable discussion about expanding this option into new fields, but no comprehensive assessment of the opportunities. To find answers, we examined the skills demanded in job postings for more than 23 million openings in 2016. We identified the underlying skills in apprenticeship roles and looked for similarities in other positions. http://bit.ly/2Cjyi9Q

The C4EE officially opened a short time ago and is already living up to its billing as the Center for Energy Education.

It started this past week with a photography course coordinated with the center, Roanoke Valley Early College and Halifax Community College.

Photography, you say? Absolutely. As the center pointed out, the name of the course is “Light” and instructor Jörg Brüggemann further defined that “photography is ‘painting with light’ and the solar industry produces electricity from sunlight. Both transform light into something new, something meaningful and usable.”
