Our daily lives have been transformed and influenced by new technology, but what’s next?
In just over 10 years, we’ve witnessed the rise of the smartphone, the Cloud and of course, the smart world of connected devices, but there are more and more advances in technology coming our way.
The launch of new batteries will push the electric future further and will form the foundation of a new era of technology.
Home energy storage systems are likely to become common ground in the future as battery technology advances and prices fall due to mass production.
The smart-grid has the potential to solve many of the UK’s future energy problems by matching supply and demand.
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Modern AI can simulate reasoning, develop knowledge, and allow computers to set and achieve goals, moving closer to mimicking the human thought process. “…only 1% of all vehicle technicians have been trained to operate on Electric Vehicles”
Electric Vehicles (EVs)
Figures published by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) each month show that electric car sales in the UK have risen dramatically over the past few years.
The Electric Skill-Shortage
Whilst we can only expect the demand for EVs to rise, the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) has growing concerns over the lack of skills required for vehicle technicians and operators to work on plug-in vehicles. According to a survey conducted by the IMI, only 1% of all vehicle technicians have been trained to operate on EVs. This issue is amplified by the UK’s general candidate shortage and war for talent, making it increasingly difficult to find quality candidates, let alone in the electric technology market.
Omega Resource Group work closely with a number of manufacturers, many of which operate in the electric industry. Our continuous involvement in the sector has provided us with a comprehensive talent pool of trained technicians.
