Boosting offshore wind skills for environmental professions (NECR445)

The UK Government has made offshore wind a core part of its future energy strategy, designed to meets demands for renewable electricity whilst contributing significantly to carbon emission reduction and to meeting Net Zero targets by 2050. The renewable energy sector will, therefore, need to increase its workforce to match the demand and grow in capacity to deliver. The purpose of this report is to research and provide recommendations on routes to closer integration of academic provision and the applied marine environmental and biological sciences with relevance to the offshore wind sector with a view to boosting the skills and aptitude of potential candidates for future recruitment into the Statutory Nature Conservation Bodies (SNCBs) and Marine Management Organisation (MMO).
