Girls into EnergyJune 6, 2016
Our latest visitors to the BGH Office were from the “Shell Girls into Energy” course which is being run through our partners Fife College. This programme is aimed at young women aged 14-16 and is designed to open their eyes to the jobs and wealth of experience that they can gain and provide to the energy industry. As part of their studies the girls are required to undertake various lessons and industrial visits, and the course leader Jade Roe, thought it important to show them the innovation happening down at the Hydrogen Office site.
The girls were given a guided tour and were able to see first hand some of the new technologies being installed as part of the LCEP (Levenmouth Community Energy Project). The new electrolyser, hydrogen tank and hydrogen refuelling stations were shown and discussed so that the pupils gained an understanding of what the project is trying to achieve and why. They were also able to get hands-on with some of the education kit, allowing them to investigate wind power and other renewable technologies.
