The competing interests of Maximising Economic Recovery (MER) of North Sea oil and gas and the binding decarbonisation goals set by the Paris Climate Agreement were under the spotlight at an event held in June by the EI’s Young Professionals Network (YPN) in Aberdeen.

The Scottish Government’s Minister for Energy, Connectivity and the Islands, Paul Wheelhouse MSP, joined a panel of industry experts to debate the changing landscape of Scotland’s energy policy.

Held at the Aberdeen’s prestigious Town House, the event also focussed on what future energy policy could mean for the careers of the young professionals working in the Scottish energy sector. 

Moderated by Stephen Thompson, Business Development Director (Renewables) at Global Energy Group, the line-up was completed by Nina Holm Viste, Commercial Manager UK at Shell; Ian Phillips, Chief Executive of the Oil and Gas Innovation Centre (OGIC); and Mai Muhammad, Energy Manager at Aberdeen City Council.
