Renewable Energy Jobs
Operating since 1975, the European Energy Centre (EEC) recognises that sustainable growth of the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency sectors can only be achieved by matching the right skills and people with the right jobs and development opportunities. The EEC offers leading short training courses at renowned Universities worldwide, and is an official provider of the internationally recognised Galileo Master Certificate.
Past participants of the EEC and achievers of the GMC Certificate include employees of Mitsubishi, Amazon, LEGO, Coca-Cola, the NHS and Deutsche Bank. You can read more from participants who have spoken about their experiences of the EEC's career development programmes.
The EEC’s Renewable Energy Careers Centre works with the following recruitment agencies, among others, in line with our mission to connect professionals and experts in renewable energy with the industry, in order to encourage long-term career development in the sector.

In order to avoid the worst impacts of climate change global carbon emissions must be reduced substantially over the coming decades (United Nations, 2013). Increasing energy efficiency, reducing the amount of energy required to provide products and services, can lead to substantial reductions in carbon emissions in conjunction with the adoption of low carbon forms of energy generation such as various renewable technologies (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, 2013). As well as its benefits in terms of reducing carbon emissions energy efficiency can have substantial economic benefits, for example, renewable energy and energy efficiency installation in the United States now employs more people than the coal industry (Rocky Mountain Institute, 2013). Improving energy efficiency has even helped a number of countries to achieve considerable economic growth whist reducing carbon emissions; Denmark, for example, achieved a 66% increase in the size of its economy between 1980 and 2009 whilst reducing carbon emissions by 21% and returning energy use to its 1980 level by promoting energy efficiency and the use of renewable technology (Rocky Mountain Institute, 2013).
New training opportunities for career progression launched to combat growing concerns over the lack of skilled professionals.
Renewable Electricity generation increased by 58% between the 2nd quarter of 2012 and the same period in 2013. This, added to the fact that Renewable Energy is being seen as a viable alternative to avoid future energy crises, means that there is an ever increasing need for a skilled workforce to meet the needs of this rapidly growing sector. There are a number of courses available as part of expert pathway programmes offered by the European Energy Centre which have been created in order to meet these demands.
The pathways are producing highly trained experts and consultants who are then able to progress their careers in the green sector. The pathway programmes aim to build on the EEC’s experience and commitment to working with its partners to promote best practice in Renewable Energy educational activities, which include the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the inter-governmental IRENA Renewable Energy Learning Partnership (IRELP) and major universities in Europe.
More specifically, courses on Electrics for Renewables (next available 27-28 November ‘13) have been designed by academics and experts to help professionals and students respond effectively to the rapid growth of the industry, through both theoretical and practical expertise. Participants can use this course to begin their progression through the pathway programme, by gaining an internationally recognised Galileo Master Certificate.

Renewable Energy Conference Urges Immediate Action
Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt University, 23 January 2011, Rajendra Shende last Thursday warned delegates at the 14th European Conference on The Latest Technologies in Renewable Energy, Heating and Cooling Applications, that there is not enough time to wait for new policy as a driver for taking action against climate change. Instead he urged local initiatives to create their own grassroots-type summit by strengthening collaborative, cross-sector partnerships between business and academia.
