first_img 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Sending Welcome Letters to new customers or members is a common practice among Financial Institutions. Whether it’s the starting point of a strategized onboarding campaign, or a solo communication, reconnecting with new customers early on can influence the entirety of their relationship with your institution.In this post, I wanted to address the importance of this initial communication, and the value a Welcome Letter creates for FIs and their customer relationships.1. INFORMA well written Welcome Letter is more than just an acknowledgement of a new member’s existence. It’s also a chance to provide them with valuable information about your institution. Who you are, what values your company holds, even what opportunities lay ahead for customers; these are all examples of what could be included in a Welcome Letter to help educate your new customer/member.2. SHOW YOU CAREA well written Welcome Letter shows your new customer/member that you value their business. It’s an effective means of strengthening the line of communication early on in the relationship. After all, who doesn’t like feeling welcome? Also, by personalizing the message to the customer’s account, you can demonstrate your FIs dedication to their customers/members as individuals – not just as a means for profit. continue reading »last_img read more

EMEC Aids Development of Marine Energy Centre in China

first_imgThe European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) will support Qingdao Pilot National Laboratory for Marine Science and Technology (QNLM) to develop the first wave and tidal test centre for marine energy converters (MECs) in China.For the past seven years EMEC have worked alongside QNLM and Ocean University of China (OUC), proving support and guidance to create a test centre for marine energy converters in China. The test site will provide a model for how future test facilities will be established across China.The test centre will be situated in the Shandong Provence, south of Qingdao near Zhaitang Island. The location has ideal conditions for testing wave and tidal energy technologies.Scheduled to be in operation by 2020, the test site will consist of two offshore sites – one for wave and one for tidal – sharing one onshore substation. Each site will be connected to Zhaitang Island’s grid via a subsea cable with a rated capacity of 200kW.Sensors and monitoring equipment for marine energy converters will also be installed, which will be directly connected and monitored.EMEC will provide support with the design and technical specifications for the test centre, including subsea cables, connectors, substation and microgrid, as well as guidance on the data acquisition system to enable integrated environmental monitoring at the test site.In addition, EMEC will also guide standard operating and certification procedures, and test protocols for wave energy converter performance and grid compliance.Oliver Wragg, commercial director at EMEC, explained: “This is a big deal for EMEC, but also for the marine sectors in China and Europe. The marine energy opportunity is a global one, and we’re ready to work with anyone who is serious about making it happen.“Since 2003, EMEC have welcomed 32 devices from 20 companies from 11 different countries to test at our centre in Orkney; this has allowed us to build a model that China’s test centre can learn from and emulate in setting up their own marine energy test site. We’ve been met with a real appetite from China to learn from the experience we’ve gained, and we’re keen to continue building collaborative R&D and innovation links between the UK and China to help drive the development of ocean energy on a global scale.”Professor Shi, at QNLM, said: “There is a vast resource of marine renewable energy in China, but its development is still in the initial stages. We know that there is a long way to go, but by collaborating with EMEC who have the experience and expertise, we’re hoping we can make some shortcuts.“We have been working with EMEC for nearly eight years and signed the MoU during the 4th Annual UK-China Energy Dialogue in October 2015, when our Chairman Xi visited the UK. Zhaitang Island is an ideal site for testing innovative wave and tidal devices and we hope that it will be a flagship of MECs in China, by providing a competitive test site for developers and their devices.”last_img read more
