In my opinion, multi-disciplinary approach in education and training is key for the current jobs required in most of the companies, especially for the energy sector, where an engineer degree together with digital skills are the perfect fit for maximizing the value creation in any digital project for the company.
The engineers must fulfil the requirements and they had to fully understand how the electrical facilities (substations, wind and PVs plants, etc.) work in order to implement properly the remote supervision and control through the IoT and SCADA platform. As a result, around 11.000 wind turbines, worldwide, from different manufactures are remotely operated in real time by the IBERDROLA team in a more efficient and intuitive way.
Additionally, our company realized the importance of the digitalisation and created last year the Digital Mentoring Program for its employees, so mentors and mentees can develop internally their digital skills.
