Scotland's Energy industry, be it oil & gas or renewables, is recognised around the world for its expertise, experience and the quality of its workforce.

With £30bn to be invested in the sector in Scotland and the opportunity to support 40,000 Scottish jobs by 2020, there has never been a more important time for companies across the supply chain to be innovative and dynamic, with an emphasis on cost reduction.
