Fuelling a new future in energy

A CONFERENCE is on the way which should be of interest to Hartlepool firms with an eye on renewable energy.

A number of town firms have already indicated that their future could increasingly rely in new forms of energy.

Their chance to find out more comes at a conference on Friday, May 13, at the Xcel Centre, Newton Aycliffe.

NOF Energy, the business support organisation for oil, gas, nuclear and offshore renewable sectors, is hosting the event which will offer supply chain companies the chance to hear from NOF Energy.

Members on how they have diversified or moved into other energy sectors, and where they see future opportunities.

It will start with an overview from ODS-Petrodata whose bosses will set the scene on current energy market trends and make national and international forecasts.

NOF members will then give insights into their businesses and experiences and also their predictions for future business.

AMEC, which works with the world’s energy, power and process industries, will highlight opportunities in the oil and gas sector. The subsea sector will be covered by SMD, one of the world’s leading subsea engineering companies.

Engineering company Darchem will focus on the nuclear sector while TAG Energy Solutions looks at opportunities in the offshore renewable sector.

George Rafferty, chief executive NOF Energy, said: “This will be a highly informative event which will help member companies to shape their future strategy in order to harness future opportunities.”
