Event Details

The Welsh Energy Sector Training (WEST) project is funded by the Low Carbon Research Institute Convergence Energy Programme.  WEST works with individuals and commercial enterprises (SMEs in particular), to provide accredited training on industry-relevant new technologies that will provide business opportunities and help Wales deliver on its low carbon agenda.

This one day Welsh Energy Sector Training Conference is free to attend. It provides a series of short, interactive 'taster sessions' on the WEST training courses available to individuals and private sector organisations interested in developing knowledge and skills in low carbon built environment, solar PV, hydrogen, marine and large scale power generation.

The WEST Conference is being hosted in parallel with the Green Building Marketplace Exhibition organised by Renewables UK Cymru. Please register for the Exhibition at http://tinyurl.com/kh9hdyt.
