Hello, fellow Electrical Technicians! Itโ€™s been a pleasure being part of this learning journey with you. You've reached the very last Task in your work experience - go you!! ๐Ÿ™Œ ๐ŸŽ‰

This wrap-up task is going to be a little bit different. With all the skills and knowledge you've accumulated over this work experience, you're ready to take things one step further...

___________________________________________________________________

Itโ€™s time to push the boundaries and get creative.ย 

โ€

The world and the ways we use technology in our daily lives are rapidly changing. The movement towards electrically-powered transport is a huge area for growth, and part of the push to make sure our planet is safeguarded for future generations to come. It goes hand in hand with an increased demand for electricity generation:

โ€

As the ways we use electricity change and adapt, so too will the role of electrical technicians and associated professions.

For this gold-level task, youโ€™ll be asked to propose and outline a project that is innovative and future thinking. Think big and think bold.

Youโ€™ll then pitch your idea to industry experts.ย 

Every month, Grandshake will host a Future Ideas Spotlight โ€“ a feature blog for stand-out pitches thatโ€™s all about you, your idea, and your passion.

So letโ€™s get into it! ๐Ÿ™Œ

Step 1: Get an idea of the areas that you might like to explore

โ€

In this work experience, you've considered the role of the electrical technician in the transport industry. It's up to you if you want to stick to this area, or consider broader issues of electrical supply, renewable energy, or some other passion of yours.ย Your project can be something that looks to the near-future, or something you imagine to be possible in the next few decades.ย Let your sci-fi dreams run wild ๐Ÿ˜„

โ€

โ€For example, you might be interested in:

  • Electric power generation solutions
  • Electric cars, planes and other transportation
  • Production of electricity by individuals and homeowners
  • Rethinking what batteries are and how they can be used for mass energy storage
  • Space-based power stations and solar power
  • How renewable energy technologies can optimised or integrated into existing industries (for example, rail)
  • How smart technology can reduce the need for electrical maintenance

Want more inspo?ย You can find extra videos on the energy grid of the future here, electric roads here, energy storage here, and the future of electric utilities here.

Decide whether you want to focus on large-scale solutions โ€“ for example, a pitch for government or energy providers โ€“ or small-scale solutions on the ground that individuals can implement themselves.

โ€

Find your passion in this field and tell us about it.

โ€

Of course, we don't expect you to know all the technical aspects of how you would implement your idea!

The goal of this task is to inspire you to think outside the box and dream big, so that one day when you do acquire the technical knowledge, you have the curiosity and creativity to push the envelope and make change happen.
