    SKILLED WIND WORKERS NEEDED

    EU wind industry skills shortage: over 5,000 more workers needed per year

    February 6, 2013 (European Wind Energy Association)

    “The European wind industry faces a severe skills shortage of around 5,500 appropriately qualified staff per year. This shortfall could climb to 18,000 by 2030 - nearly 5% of the entire wind industry workforce - if numbers of suitable workers don’t increase according to a report…based on research by renewable energy consultancy GL Garrad Hassan…

    “The recommendations…[from the EU’s Wind Energy Technology Platform (TPWind) in] European Wind Energy Training Needs, Opportunities and Recommendations… include:"

    “…Emphasise Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (‘STEM’) skills in vocational training…[and] Increase industry input into academic courses…

    “…[Also add] More graduates of wind energy generalist courses…[harmonize] Vocational Education and Training across the EU…[and put] Greater emphasis on training in operations and maintenance…”
