“Energy is the inherent capacity of the universe to make matter exist” Kedar Joshi
The energy industry is facing the biggest period of change since the industrial revolution. Globally, the need to respond to the world's increasing energy challenge while finding cheaper, greener energy sources and reducing carbon emissions continues to drive change across the industry as a whole.
Having to service a combined population of more than 29 million people and an economy with a GDP in excess of €800 billion places a heavy responsibility on the shoulders of the energy producers in The Netherlands and Belgium.
Despite the vital role it plays, the sector faces a series of unprecedented challenges; increased public scrutiny and an expectation to provide greener, cheaper services.
This has been made more complex by the liberalisation of the energy markets across the region between 1998 and 2005, and the in-flux of international energy companies, coupled with the need to comply with the 20-20-20 EU vision looking to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20%, increase energy efficiency by 20% and ensuring that 20% of our energy supply is produced by renewable sources by the year 2020.
Against this backdrop, the energy industry is facing up to the challenges of chronic talent shortages, specifically the increasing demand for experts who are able to quickly adapt to this dynamic market, working in a both national and international market, bound to economical fluctuations and governmental regulations.
