This week is Green Careers Week, which also coincides with the United Nations Climate Change Conference COP27. A key theme this year is the continued push for tackling global warming, and with the Power sector taking almost a quarter of the share of greenhouse gas emissions globally, the transformation to renewable energy is more important than ever.

The IEA have identified that the combination of energy crisis, geopolitical issues, and wide public support for renewable energy in the face of the climate crisis is fuelling growth in the renewables market, and has shown that the demand for fossil fuels has peaked, and in some models, is in decline.

New companies and contracts are appearing globally, and traditional oil and gas companies are turning to renewables to diversify their portfolio and invest in alternatives as the sector develops.

As a result, there has never been a better time to consider getting into renewable energy. Demand for the right skills is high, and transferrable skills and experience from other technical, engineering, electrical and scientific fields can all be great opportunities to move into a diverse sector.

In this short blog, we’ve highlighted some of our previous content on renewable energy, to highlight the diverse range of careers available as part of Green Careers Week. Take a look at the links below to learn more about renewables and green energy.
