Summary of the survey results
In order to better appreciate the potential impact of the project, a survey on the labour market need for specialists with enhanced knowledge and skills in renewable and sustainable energy technologies has been conducted in the related EU and Latin America countries.
More than 60 organizations have been interviewed and almost 70% of them declared to be interested in employing engineers with enhanced knowledge on renewable energy in the next three years.
Despite each country having its own needs, the research carried out under this EU project confirms the potential of renewable energy education on the global labour market in the near future.
The results of the survey were presented by Dr Luca Cioccolanti at 10th ICAE Conference in Hong Kong on the 22-25 August 2018. The presented paper was then published on Energy Procedia Conference Proceedings journal as reported below.
