Thinking Group Meeting 2022

RESkill to REPower

Green Jobs&Skills at the centre of the 2022 EnR Thinking Group Meeting

On October 17, the European Energy Network (EnR) held its annual Thinking Group meeting in Malta, hosted by EWA, The Energy and Water Agency, with 12 agencies attending in a hybrid format. The meeting was devoted to the topic of Green Jobs & Skills for the Energy Transition. Under the motto “RESkill to REPower”, network agencies discussed preliminary results from an ongoing study on the gap between market needs and the workforce to meet the challenges of the energy transition and how to overcome it. A group of invited stakeholders, from the European Commission, International Labour Organization, European Trade Union Institute (ETUI) and Energy Cities, discussed with EnR agencies, how cross-sectorial knowledge exchange is fundamental to allow for a better match between sectoral needs and the existing and future workforce. Common platforms and common indicators will prove instrumental and several examples were discussed.
