With growing global demand for energy and concerns over climate change, renewable energy industries worldwide are projected to be in a growth phase for the foreseeable future. That creates not only funding, political and infrastructure challenges, but workforce challenges as well.
Renewable energy industries are faced with hiring professionals with technical and management skills that will support and sustain each organization’s plans for growth. Because these individuals currently are in short supply, renewable energy companies are, in a large sense, engaged in a difficult war for workforce talent. They are competing with traditional energy companies for engineers and other workers with technical skills. At the same time, they are struggling to meet growing demand for leaders, business developers and other professionals.
