Project Description

Theme E3: Developing the future energy workforce
What are the skills, innovation and learning programs required for the workforce to facilitate the energy transition with a customer centric and increasingly decentralised energy system, and how can they be best delivered?

The purpose of the developing the future energy workforce opportunity assessment project is to develop a pathway to understanding the present and future energy workforce in Australia. It seeks to understand the expected and potential workforce growth for a rapid and equitable transition, the specific occupations and skills that are going to be required, how to deliver the training needed, and how innovation pathways can be strengthened to support Australia’s energy transition. The project includes three work packages on: 1. Market size, workforce and employment; 2. New skills development; and 3. Innovation pathways. The project will produce a research roadmap, specifying priority research projects, for theme E3, including consideration of relevant barriers and solutions, for the duration of RACE for 2030.
