UEP Operations Personnel

Project scope

The Electricity Generation industry is transitioning from a model of mostly coal fired steam turbine generation to a mix of thermal (coal), gas (natural, liquefied petroleum and hydrogen), renewable (solar), and large-scale wind generation and power storage. This has led to a change in skills needs and greater workforce mobility within the industry.

 

The ESI Generation Industry Reference Committee (IRC) proposed a project to update seven qualifications to address changes in the generation industry, including the move to renewable energy power generation, increasing automation of power generation control systems and data analytics.
