Initial discussions between representatives from Severn Wye Energy agency, the Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA) and the Renewable Energy Association (REA) highlighted a gap in training provision for small scale AD plant owners. Further discussions with the Environment Agency confirmed this particularly for the unregulated plant. As a result of this, a decision was made to look at options for developing short and concise training modules available on dvd and youtube.
Aims and Objectives of This Action
The main aim of this training package is to address the day to day risks of running a plant.
How this Action could be Replicated
This activity can be easily replicated where a gap in training provision has been identified. One of the main barriers may be acquiring skilled professionals to provide their knowledge, however it is reasonable to assume that this should not be a problem.
