Transition to renewables: Implications for workforce development
According to energy think tank Ember, the EU is expected to keep on advancing in the direction of transitioning from fossil fuels to more sustainable renewable energy resources throughout 2023, with a significant development expected within the next few years, before the end of 2030 . In May 2023, wind and solar produced more energy in the EU than fossil fuels combined. The transition foresees an increase in the demand for highly skilled workforce in the sector, where safety and efficiency are focal points of operating in these high-risk environments. Investing into proper training and aligning on training standards will play a key role in closing the gap associated with the skills and competencies required for the green energy transition.
