The green energy sector will require the right skills for the jobs available, cheap electricity customers might be interested to hear.
This is the opinion of Nick Medic, head of communications at RenewableUK, who noted that initiatives aimed at driving young people into the green energy sector will be required into the sector.
"Some projections are that the sector could grow within the next ten years to 60,000 or 70,000-plus people. At the moment, there is a balance between the growth of employment and the skill sets required, and we just need to make sure this is maintained," he pointed out.
"You'll notice that in most regions where there is a sense that jobs could shortly materialise there are already employment and education initiatives to try to get a greater number of young people into this sector."
Mr Medic's comments come in light of research from Acre Resources showing that green jobs outperformed the rest of the UK employment market last year despite the uncertain economic conditions.
