PEOPLE AND INDUSTRY

Skilling the energy transition

The clean energy sector is in a period of extraordinary growth as Australia accelerates towards a fully renewable energy economy.
Around 30,000 people are already employed across large-scale renewable energy construction, operation and maintenance and small-scale rooftop solar design and installation - but significant workforce growth is required to deliver these projects in a sustainable, safe and efficient way. Find out how the Clean Energy Council is driving workforce growth and diversity, and how you can get involved.
