Deploy energy solutions faster and safer

New innovations in renewable energy and increasing the efficiency of existing production represent a challenge to traditional training in meeting the demands for a quickly evolving and highly skilled workforce.

VR training is being used to deliver better training - providing a safe environment in which to learn new technologies rapidly and improve safety in potentially dangerous environments.

Training for a next generation

The energy industry faces challenges on multiple fronts - a retiring workforce, the need for renewed infrastructure, renewable energy transformation and the introduction of new technology through smart homes.

Providing access to modern training is essential to fill the growing skill gap with a new generation of digital-native workers. VR training radically shortens training time through immersive learning, providing a way to adapt and bring new highly skilled workers to the forefront quickly and efficiently.

The rapid innovations in renewable energy and modern smart home technologies mean that traditional training becomes quickly obsolete. VR training offers a way to provide new workers with the ability to experience new innovations even before they arrive on the market.

Increasing safety with learn-by-doing

Interaction with energy means potentially dangerous environments - awareness for operational procedures are vital to keep workers safe.

The mix of aging infrastructure together with new smart home technologies requires workers to have a broad skillset to operate and perform installation and maintenance safely.

The limits of traditional training means that for many workers, real-life application of fresh training means the first-time learned skills are tested.

VR training provides a way to practice and assess operational readiness in a safe environment that accurately re-creates real-life scenarios.

Ready for distributed teams

Energy systems are de-centralised by nature, involving many sequential steps from energy production to distribution and consumption.

For many workers in the energy industry, off-shore assignments make traditional centralised training especially difficult to implement and disruptive to business continuity.

VR training delivers better training remotely using low-cost VR headsets with immediate access to fresh training material. Specific and specialised training areas of the energy lifecycle can be created and distributed to teams or individuals anywhere.
