Wind power: Potential benefits of offshore energy in Ireland set out on the BBC website mentions our recommendations for that the Irish government to establish a skills development fund, attract workers from abroad to meet short-term skills gaps, ensure offshore skills are covered in education and build expert knowledge. The report also identifies the expected job opportunities, from early-stage development and project management activities, through to operations, maintenance and service activity, particularly in new floating wind technologies.

Leo Bertels led our work on the Irish skills report and potential benefits of offshore energy in partnership with Green Tech Skillnet and Wind Energy Ireland.
