Demand for Human Capital in Renewables is Back

The industry lobbyists don't want to hear this, but the demand for human capital in renewable energy is back. In some cases, it never went away. Have you heard about an unemployed solar engineer? Me neither! There is a very real gap between supply and demand for experienced talent who work in solar PV, wind, battery energy storage, and electric vehicles. It's been this way for a solid two years, and not even a pandemic and financial crisis can stop it.

For the third straight month, we've seen all the signs indicating job growth, and now we have the revenue in August to prove it. The demand for September is there to finish the 3rd quarter strong, and Q4 should be smooth sailing to complete an overall strong year in job creation.

I will continue to monitor the employment market in clean energy and report more industry data next month. If you'd like to have a discussion about the effects of the pandemic on your hiring strategy, please reply to this email to set up a meeting with me. If you are currently exploring a new job in your renewable energy career, we invite you to have a look at our careers portal.

What are we working on? Less manufacturing and more project development, engineering, construction, and O&M. We have an active candidate pipeline in commercial and utility-scale solar developers, project managers, and engineers. If you're hiring project development or energy asset management professionals, reach out to us today.
