Do You Have The Needed Renewable Energy Skills?
There is no better way to learn about the skills and education you will need is to review the world wide shortages that are projected for the industry. This free webinar outlines the skills needed for not just solar but also wind, geothermal and many other renewable energy technologies.
The Clean Energy Solutions Center, in partnership with the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), hosted this webinar on addressing one of the greatest barriers to the adoption of renewable energy technologies: the critical shortage of skilled personnel to develop, design, finance, build, operate and maintain renewable energy projects.
The boom in solar photovoltaic (PV) and wind technologies, in particular, has created a huge demand for skilled technicians to install PV, and to maintain and operate wind installations. There is also a pressing need for trained professionals within educational institutions to teach renewable energy courses, within governments to design and implement effective and efficient policies, and within financial institutions to accurately assess renewable energy project proposals.
Much Needed Renewable Energy Skills & Education
This webinar brought together expert panelists from IRENA; Alingho, a human resources firm that supports companies in the fields of renewable energies, clean tech and sustainability to fill job vacancies; and the Clean Energy Solutions Center to address this topic.
