Workers Wanted - The EU wind energy sector skills gap


Engineer Woman at Desk

A report released by the European Wind Energy Association shows that the European wind industry can play a key role in combating unemployment.

It is estimated that nearly 50,000 additional trained staff will be needed by the industry by 2030. By that year, operations and maintenance will become the greatest source of new jobs and demand for trained staff.

There is currently a shortage of 7,000 qualified personnel required by the European wind energy sector each year, a figure that could increase to 15,000 by 2030 if the number of graduates taking courses relevant to the industry does not rise.
