National Wind Workforce Assessment: Current Workers to Industry

Research output: NRELPresentation


As a part of the National Wind Workforce Assessment, four presentations have been created in conjunction with the technical report to provide more insight into key findings. The four presentations are catered towards specific stakeholder groups that include: educators, wind industry firms, students, and current wind industry employees. This presentation is intended for us by wind industry employers and current workers, including recent graduates in work, looking to gain insight into key levers that can contribute to the narrowing or widening of the wind workforce gap. The discussion around how the wind workforce gap is brought up as it relates to current workers and recent graduates and barriers to employment for wind energy firms. It breaks down the discussion by discussing about wind industry perceptions by current workers and wind energy firms, hiring challenges by wind energy firms as well as consideration by prospective workers on the wind industry, and then lastly discusses automation and its contribution to narrowing the wind workforce gap.
