The upswing in global wind sector leads to demand for additional workers

The growth in the global wind energy industry will demand an additional 600,000 technicians over the next five years. China would account for more than 40 per cent of this additional labour demand. This situation highlights workforce challenges and opportunities in the clean energy sector. A healthy supply chain and a strong workforce will be important to the growth of wind capacity in this decade.

Several growth predictions are being made in the clean energy sector worldwide, including:

  • Annual wind energy capacity addition is expected to double to 155 gigawatts (GW) in 2027
  • The total wind fleet worldwide is expected to reach around 1,581GW in five years
  • The global wind sector would require over 574,200 technicians by 2027
