­­Pact for Skills: Launch of large-scale renewable energy skills partnership

In March 2023, the renewable energy trade associations and representatives of installers of clean technologies set up a large-scale renewable energy skills partnership. The partnership receives support of the European Commission.

To meet the EU's energy and climate targets for 2030 and climate neutrality by 2050, the number of skilled workers needs to increase. Experts estimate that more than 3.5 million jobs will need to be created in all renewable energy sectors by 2030. These skills include the manufacturing and management of renewable energy technologies. The partnership aims to create quality jobs and career paths, to increase training opportunities and to involve national authorities and educational institutions.

This large-scale partnership will help to increase the number of well-trained workers as well as reskilling and upskilling them in order to achieve the clean energy transition.
