Engineering at low carbon crossroads

Engineering at low carbon crossroads
More people need to be encouraged to enter the engineering industry in order to improve the UK's environmental performance, a new report has claimed.

The National Grid has released a study indicating that new talent is needed if Britain is to successfully reduce carbon emissions.

If the engineering sector faces a skills shortage in the future, this could have a negative impact upon any moves towards a low carbon economy.

Steve Holliday, chief executive of the National Grid, said that the country is "facing a crossroads" in terms of its renewable energy and engineering plans.

"The only way to tackle the challenge of changing climate, ensure energy supplies are secure, and address the required fundamental changes in the way each of us thinks about energy may require engineering the future," he commented.

"We are at the beginning of an energy revolution and there has never been a more exciting time to join and help shape the future."

Views upon engineering were given by 1,300 people aged between 14 and 19 in the Engineering Our Future report.
