PSC sponsors WiE and YEP
September 24, 2022

As far as TLAs (three-letter acronyms) go, these two – WiE and YEP – are among Perth’s most active organizations in the Australian energy industry today, and we couldn’t be more delighted to announce our sponsorship of both Women in Energy (WiE) and Young Energy Professionals (YEP).

Women in Energy

WiE is an enthusiastic organization of people supporting women in the energy industry. WiE seeks to empower and inspire future female leaders to achieve success through knowledge and connection. They aim to encourage talented women in the industry to stand out and develop their careers.

Young Energy Professionals

YEP are energetic individuals aged under 35 who support Australian Institute of Energy (AIE) events for continuous learning and professional development. These two non-profit organizations are a subset of the AIE, a national, not-for-profit energy professional association.

Getting together

Our APAC Markets Systems and Energy Applications team based in Perth have been actively participating in various activities such as networking events, workshops and energy conferences hosted by WiE, YEP and AIE. PSC consulting was first introduced to YEP during the Start of Financial Year Sundowner 2022 event where the team conversed with diverse individuals from the energy industry to discuss relatable topics, share views about energy news or simply enjoy a drink and company of new connections.

Sharing experiences

Our Perth team also joined an interactive and dynamic AIE WiE workshop on “Leading Change in Uncertainty” which enabled us to share our experiences on the changes brought about by COVID19. We spoke about the impact of change and how our company supported us all by introducing a Wellness Day. PSC workshop participants learned how people in the power sector coped with the rapid adjustments in the work environment. At the end of the event, PSC was introduced as one of the Bronze sponsors of WIE.

Learning from each other

I was proud to be one of our Perth team who attended the 21st Energy Week Western Australia Conference at the Ritz-Carlton organized by the AIE. Guest speakers shared great insights about the international, national and local changes and trends in power systems. They explained the journey of decarbonization and its challenges due to economic, technological and political factors. Some of our APAC team also attended the WA Energy Awards night at Kings Park where we met with other delegates and celebrated with clients and old acquaintances.

PSC continues to shape its culture as we invest in the future and foster bright ideas to nurture and collaborate our relationships via trade associations and non-profit organizations within the energy industry.
