Consumers who perhaps want to switch energy to a greener supplier might be interested to hear that employment in the renewables sector is set to become more competitive.
This is the opinion of Ben Cartland, associate at international recruitment company Acre Resources, who noted: "The wider renewable sector is still buoyant; however with the cap on the number of highly skilled migrant workers being accepted into the country, I foresee the competition for experienced technical talent intensifying."
He expressed his belief that the next surge in growth in the green energy industry will come when manufacturing sites go onstream.
"But you are looking at taking on those who have been involved in manufacturing and not renewables specialists," Mr Cartland pointed out.
His remarks follow an announcement from the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills last week stating that the government is putting up £2.5 million in funding for a new green skills academy.
