A group of energy giants will today launch a new alliance aiming to stimulate the renewable industry as Europe seeks to advance its low carbon economy and create new trade jobs.
The companies said they are aiming to promote the use of gas alongside the growth of renewables by creating policies that effectively integrate the two technologies.
They maintain that both gas and renewables could play a critical role in the European Commission’s 2050 Energy Roadmap, and that the two technologies will be highly complementary until at least 2030.
They argue that gas can provide a low carbon and flexible energy supply that can help balance out the supply of intermittent renewables, such as wind and solar.
Launching the partnership, Stephan Reimelt, chief executive of GE Germany, will say that combining renewables and gas will be the key to building a low carbon economy.
“Companies from different parts of the energy market are launching this new alliance because the evidence is clear that renewables and gas offer the most affordable, reliable, and sustainable pathway for an energy secure Europe,” he will say.
Jörg Gmeinbauer, director of Alpine Energie, will say the alliance can herald a shift in the debate around EU energy policy.
“It’s time for a systems approach to Europe’s energy policy,” he says. “We need integrated policies, market reforms, and investment in generation, transmission, and infrastructure if we are to achieve Europe’s energy goals.
“We have formed the Energy Partnership because together the partners can offer practical pathways to the future based on the synergy between renewables and gas.”
Virtual reality training and Innovative 3D simulation can help students accelerate the learning process and build vocational skills much faster than any other conventional studying environments; research by “Towards Maturity” has revealed.
Game technologies and new innovative learning methods can help students actively engage in the building trades just the way they would normally do in the real world. The research found that each student’s skills and confidence will increase once their fear of failure has been appropriately addressed.
In addition to increasing students’ achievements, the overall aim of any virtual reality programme is to make things more accessible and reduce training costs, Head of Research at Towards Maturity, Dr Genny Dixon has found.
The research shows that the time spent on training could be reduced by 30%, resulting in significantly lower costs for students. Read the full details of the research below:
