The continued success of wind and marine energy is dependent on attracting skilled workers. There were around 10,000 people employed in these industries in 2010, and approximately 88,000 will be needed by 2021. This represents a huge opportunity to create UK jobs, and a practical way for people to apply their enthusiasm for renewable energy and the environment.
It is important that the UK works to increase
To address the skills challenges and nurture homegrown talent, RenewableUK contributes to a range of initiatives including the creation of modern apprenticeships to the formation of accord agreements.
Recently with government and employer support, RenewableUK established the Renewables Training Network to ensure those with relevant skills and expertise in other sectors are able to make the transition across to renewables.
