Those looking to work in energy management don’t necessarily need to have an engineering background.
That’s according to Dan Hubbard, a leading energy manager, who is encouraging graduates studying different subjects to get involved in the industry.
Speaking at the Energy Live 2016 conference, he said he has a sports science degree and wasn’t really aware of energy management prior to joining the sector and didn’t have any experience as recently as eight years ago.
Mr Hubbard told ELN: “There are so many different skillsets that are required to perform well in that job, it isn’t just engineering that can help. I think that’s the next stage really, tapping into that well of experience that sits across many different sectors.”
