Managing a Career in the Energy Transition

Sean McQuaid profile photoSean McQuaid, of ERCE, presented to the EAGE (European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers) students yesterday on how to manage a career in the energy transition. He discussed which career opportunities may arise and what kind of pathways a career could take.

Many developed countries are detailing how they intend to reach Net Zero in the middle of this century. This means anyone starting a career in Energy will be witness to what might be the most momentous revolution in collective human endeavour. The UK government states 200,000 jobs are required to contribute £2.5 trillion to the UK economy by 2050 in the Energy Transition. We need to train tens of thousands of Energy Transition Scientists across a gamut of disciplines from aerodynamicists to waste and recycling engineers.
