Launch of the Heat Academy in Stoke-on-Trent; October 26th, 2018
Stoke-on-Trent Lord Mayor, Lilian Dodd opened the new Heat Academy at Stoke-on-Trent College. Ruth Smeeth, MP for Stoke North gave her support to the new venture in a speech praising the College, Council and Nordic Heat/The Smart City Alliance for their vision in developing the new Academy.
Carol Martin, Vice Principal of Stoke-on-Trent College, welcomed the new opportunities that the Heat Academy will bring to the people of Stoke and particularly to young people looking to develop high level skills to meet the ambitions of the Stoke Sustainable Smart City project. Her words were echoed by Julie Obada, Strategic Manager for Employment, Learning and Skills for Stoke Staffs LEP.
Andrew Briggs and Sebastien Danneels gave detailed presentations about the Stoke Sustainable Smart City project with particular reference to the district heating scheme. Local and national organisations were then able to question Andrew and Sebastien about the potential supply chain opportunities.
Nordic Heat and The Smart City Alliance are supporting Stoke-on-Trent Council in developing the Stoke Sustainable Smart City project and, in particular the, district heating scheme, Hotspot SME supply chain support programme and Heat Academy. Peter Anderberg, CEO, said “we are delighted to be working with Stoke Council on the Smart City Stoke project. The installation of the district heating and other smart city projects will create many new employment and supply chain opportunities. We want to make sure that the Heat Academy and Hotspot programmes help local people take full advantage of these new opportunities.”
