Skills Manifesto

Skills policy recommendations from the wind and marine energy industries

The continued success of wind and marine energy is dependent on the sector’s ability to attract skilled workers to resource existing and future projects. In 2013, research commissioned by RenewableUK and Energy & Utility Skills estimated that the sector directly employs around 18,500 full-time equivalent workers, with an additional 16,000 jobs supported indirectly. This is forecast to grow to up to 55,000 direct jobs and 50,000 indirect jobs by 2023. This threefold projected growth represents a huge opportunity to harness the enthusiasm that members of the public, and young people in particular, have for environmental issues and renewable energy.
