issue 110 | MAY 2019
/ As the Trump administration explores the possibility of selling US technology to Saudi Arabia, we look at the kingdoms civil nuclear push and its potential routes for development. Plus, the ‘US Energy and Employment Report 2019’ details how job opportunities in the energy industry are growing and who is most in demand.
We also take a look at the UK’s plan to get 30% of its electricity from wind power by 2030, its efforts upgrade its transmission and distribution system using Edinburgh-based start-up Faraday Grid’s smart power management, and a project led by the University of Nottingham, which is hoping to spark a brand new biofuel industry in Ghana.
Finally, Germany has set aside around $1.1bn to support battery production, research from the IEEFA has shown that the rate of lenders exiting coal has accelerated of over one per month and SOS Intl and WSC have developed the first power industry simulator designed to train distribution system operators to perform normal and emergency tasks. /
