A series of organisations from across building services engineering are backing the new industry-wide Power Players initiative, which is being run by the Electrical Contractors' Association (ECA), and is set to formally launch in late spring.
All Things Media – who are running this year’s Electrical Design & Install Expo – will be an official partner of Power Players. As part of this, the finalists will be showcased during the ECA-sponsored ED&I Expo in September, with the winners announced during the show.
The Electrical Industries Charity will also be partnering on Power Players, with EIC’s CEO Tessa Ogle to feature on the initiative’s judging panel.
ECA CEO Steve Bratt commented: “I am delighted to confirm that our new Power Players initiative is attracting support from right across the engineering services sector. With recognition and some great prizes on offer, we look forward to seeing top talent from the sector taking part in the initiative.”
Electrical Industries Charity CEO Tessa Ogle said: “Power Players is a very important initiative because it will provide recognition for young people who are already making a positive impact in the early part of their careers. The Electrical Industries Charity is delighted to be involved and I look forward to working with all of the partners to highlight and reward the successes which the younger generation are bringing to the industry.”
Power Players is also being supported by a range of other industry bodies including:
- Scottish electrical trade body Select
- Joint Industry Board (JIB)
- Electrical Distributors Association (EDA)
- Building Services and Environmental Engineer (BSEE)
- Voltimum, an electrical industry portal
Power Players is a completely digital initiative aimed at the younger generation who have already made a positive impact in their careers. In addition to recognition and publicity, there will be an array of prizes and opportunities on offer to the top entries, worth thousands of pounds.
Power Players will open to entries in late spring.
