A skilled workforce is a crucial component to Australia’s energy transformation.

A strong clean energy sector must be founded on a dynamic and skilled workforce, supported by a focus on job safety, quality, and sustainability for Australians and Australian communities.

The Clean Energy Council is spearheading a coordinated effort to engage industry, governments, training institutions and other relevant stakeholders in laying the foundations for a strong and secure renewable energy workforce. Research commissioned by the Clean Energy Council in 2019 suggests that the renewable energy sector faces issues regarding:

  • the recruitment of skilled and semi-skilled workers to meet the needs of a growing industry
  • retention of the workforce in the context of challenging policy and regulatory environments
  • aligning industry opportunities with approaches to regional development.
