The WEST (Welsh Energy Sector Training) project is supported by the Low Carbon Research Institute’s (LCRI) Convergence Energy Programme and its main is to develop skills to aid the utilisation and uptake of new technologies developed through the LCRI  industrial research projects.  This will ensure that industrial research is disseminated through both traditional educational streams as well as directly to industry through Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
