Register interest in North Sea 2

Member feedback shapes the delivery of E-FWD events. From content, to format, to outcomes, we listen to your priorities. That's why, on Tuesday 05 March, 2024,  we will tackle North Sea 2. This gathering will take place in the Aberdeen Journals Office, located in central Aberdeen from 4pm - 9.30pm.

Three workshops will be offered. Members will explore solutions to immediate challenges, including:

  •  Jobs and skills development
  •  Decommissioning
  •  Offshore wind optimisation

Attendees will choose their preferred workshop. After the workshops, the entire membership will reconvene to discuss the outcomes, engage with policy makers, and network.

Members drive the E-FWD agenda

Because E-FWD is driven by its membership, we are pleased to announce the members who will serve as moderators of each workshop.

Jobs and skills development will be moderated by Peter Tipler, Managing Director of X-Academy . Decommissioning will be moderated by Phil Milton, CEO of Well-Safe Solutions . Offshore wind optimisation will be moderated by Andrew Macdonald, Director of Offshore Wind Development, and Andy Overton, Head of Business Development, both of ORE Catapult.

Members say they want E-FWD to use its connectivity to aid their business transition to cleaner energy.

For this reason, we will host a panel of policy leaders and shapers who will observe the workshops, and be available to take questions and feedback in the evening. Come prepared to share your examples of how energy policy affects the workforce, outputs, and direction of your organisation.
