Research on skills needed for jobs related to renewable energy

This overall report is the final result of the research on skills needed for jobs related to renewable energy, conducted in the frame of the project NE(W)AVE: reNEWable e-Vet learning.

Through this comparative research the project aims to provide a general glance on the situation in the renewable energy sector and the process of an appropriate adaptation of trained skills in the project partner countries. Moreover, this research gives a clear view of the skill mismatches between job demands and learning offers in the renewable energy sectors of these countries.

For the NE(W)AVE project consortium the research findings served as a basis for the contents which will be included into the Open Online Course (OOC) to be developed and provided to VET learners with the aim to upgrade and convert existing “green” competences according to the demands of the renewable energy sector.




Video Tutorials

These tutorial videos were made by, St.H and Heliotec, companies working with the renewable energies. Through these videos practical information about photovoltaic panels installation, photovoltaic system installation on a pitched roof, biomass and solar thermal collectors are provided. The aim of these video tutorials is to provide practical knowledge to the learners who wish to acquire/update their skills on this field.

Open Online Course

This Open Online Course is addressed to future professionals of the renewable energy sector, especially plumbers and electricians, who want to upgrade/convert their competences and requalify themselves in this field
