Sam Etherington, founder of Renewable Wave Power, Lancaster, UK, is willing to take a chance. Admittedly, he can be headstrong when someone tells him he can’t do something. He kiteboards. The latter is actually part of the reason he’s the youngest person ever shortlisted for the UK Engineering Hall of Fame. At the age of 24. Surfing on a kiteboard, he realized the power of waves and developed a way to harvest energy through his wave power generator. READ MORE AT ASME
Secretary Moniz has announced the creation of the Jobs Strategy Council (JSC), an initiative focused on accelerating job growth in American-made clean energy sources while implementing the President’s Climate Action Plan, during a roundtable with the business leaders of Energy Intensive, Trade Exposed industries and their unions, the United Steelworkers, the United Autoworkers, the Machinists, the IUE-CWA, and the AFL-CIO. Building on the President’s effort laid out in the State of the Union to...
A Colorado task force on oil and gas drilling is trying to find agreement on proposals to resolve disputes over local control and landowner rights. The 21-member panel meets again Tuesday as it whittles down a list of 56 suggestions. Gov. John Hickenlooper formed the task force last year and set a Feb. 27 deadline for its recommendations. The panel hasn't taken any final votes. The task force is made up of oil and gas industry representatives, local government officials and civic leaders....
Plunging oil prices have hurt American companies in the short run, but increased U.S. production means that the country is on the path to become a global leader in oil production, the head of the U.S. oil and gas industry's top lobbying arm said. Falling oil prices have empowered the United States and weakened OPEC and Russia, said Jack Gerard, the CEO of the American Petroleum Institute. The result is that increased U.S. production in North Dakota and elsewhere has "fundamentally reordered the...
Oil and gas industry employers in the UK are facing significant skills shortages according to the Oil & Gas Global Salary Guide, and over 65 percent (68.1%) of employers plan to increase headcount in 2014, exacerbating the already skill-short market, adding pressure to increase salaries to attract candidates, which is based on data from 24,000 respondents. 83 percent of employers predict an upturn in salaries in the coming year as hiring managers vie for top talent, at the same time as...
Good oil and gas talent is in short supply. Combine the so-called “Big Shift Change” with the reduced number of students applying for and completing STEM courses in college, and there is a serious concern about where the next generation of industry talent will come from. As oil and gas companies bring in new talent to meet staffing demands, CEB research shows that five-in-six hiring managers believe their new graduate hires lack the skills and knowledge they need to be successful. But rather...

This program is one example of outreach by the energy industry to veterans of the military. Careers related to energy are among the best jobs for veterans. As a longtime supporter of the military, Southern Company is proud to enhance our recruitment efforts through this innovative partnership with the U.S...
A recent Hard Hat Hub study of construction and engineering professionals in the power (transmission and distribution) industry found that companies will ramp up hiring in 2014, but many are having trouble finding talent and filling open positions. Nearly 70% of the companies reported experiencing growth in the parts of their businesses that relate to the transmission and distribution of power. The remaining 30% said that their firms, while not hiring today, “may be” before year’s end. Ninety...
Finding a good-paying, stable job that won’t leave the country tops the priority list for many Americans in these difficult economic times. But for those just graduating from high school or college, it seems harder than ever. Yet high-paying jobs are available right here in New Mexico and across the United States. Careers in energy, including jobs as linemen, power plant operators and engineers, are often overlooked by today’s youths. Gov. Susana Martinez has therefore declared Oct. 14-20...
Growth in unconventional oil and natural gas activity is transforming America’s energy future and strengthening its overall economy in terms of jobs, government revenues, and gross domestic product, according to a recent report from IHS. The report, entitled “America’s New Energy Future: The Unconventional Oil & Gas Revolution & the US Economy, Vol. 3,” extends on the initial analysis to include the full value-chain associated with the unconventional revolution: from drilling and...
