The continued success of wind and marine energy is dependent on attracting skilled workers.

We take a lead on a range of skills initiatives with input and guidance from our Skills Working Group. This group represents the industry and provides leadership in addressing skills issues. It works to ensure that a pool of skilled and experienced recruits will be available to meet the sector’s current and future employment needs.

RenewableUK has worked with the Skills Working Group on:

  • Renewable Energy Careers & STEM Guidance & Apprenticeship Programme Accords, the UK’s first Sector Skills Accords.
  • Labour market research, incl. Working for a Green Britain & Northern Ireland, and RenewableUK's annual State of the Industry reports.
  • Skills Manifesto - skills policy recommendations from the wind & marine energy industries
  • Wind Turbine Technician Apprenticeship - UK’s first apprenticeship for renewables
  • Engaging with Higher Education and Professional Institutions to strengthen link between course provision & skills gaps.
  • Outreach via careers resources, engagement with education sector, conferences, and external events.
  • Facilitating a network for human resources professionals in the sector via benchmarking opportunities through a Renewables Sector Salary Survey and shared learning and networking opportunities at regular events.
  • Providing the means for a collaborative and concerted ‘voice’ for the industry on skills and employment issues.
