Speaker BIO and Topic Information

Delia Warren (P. Eng.) is director of Iron & Earth East – the eastern chapter of Iron & Earth. A Memorial University graduate in mechanical engineering, she’s spent 7 years working in the offshore oil and gas industry in Scotland, France and at home in St. John’s. Starting her career as a pipeline engineer in R&D she eventually transitioned into subsea and offshore structural design.

After getting laid off from the oil services company she worked for in June of 2016,  Delia began to volunteer for Iron & Earth East and eventually took on the role of director in October. She also sits on the board of directors for the national organization.
Iron & Earth East (I&EE) has the unique position of advocating for renewable energy jobs in a province with an underdeveloped renewable energy industry. The mandate of I&EE has thus been to advocate for an increased presence of renewable energy projects and to educate the public on the opportunities that are available to us, and our trades workers, in this industry.

The flagship project for I&EE in 2017 is the 365 Greenhouse: a year-round greenhouse powered by renewable energy technology. In addition, they have launched a Speaker Series and plan to travel around the province, addressing misinformation surrounding the renewable energy potential for Newfoundland and Labrador, and identifying opportunities for workers through “shop talks”. As the world shifts away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energy, I&EE want to make sure that Newfoundlanders and Labradorians are not left behind.
