New Skills Training for Wind, Wave and Tidal Energy Jobs in the U.K.

RenewableUK, a renewable energy trade association, announced the creation of the Renewables Training Network (RTN) on October 6, 2011. With £600,000 support from private industry and matching investment from the UK government, the training network “will address critical skills shortages within the renewable energy industry”, and according to the press release, the network is “paving the way for over 77,500 new jobs in UK wind, wave and tidal industries and supply chain within next ten years”. This investment follows on a survey, Working for a Green Britain: Future Employment and Skills in the UK Wind & Marine Industries published by the association in July 2011.
