Energy World January 2014

Energy use in industry and commerce – this issue includes three articles which cover the energy demand side; from the effectiveness of energy efficiency measures and energy monitoring, through energy price movements, to the case for businesses to go ‘off-grid’ or at least generate some of their electricity needs on-site. Or how about buying energy from locally-based energy suppliers? 

This issue is also the first to be published during the Energy Institute’s 100th anniversary – see page 26 for the first in a series of commemorative articles. 

Last, we include a feature on careers, skills and training in the energy industry. London joins Aberdeen as EI branches with a Young Professionals Network; and we look at skills solutions for the utilities and nuclear energy sectors.
