Workers wanted: The EU wind energy sector skills gap

August 2013

The European wind industry has grown rapidly. Installed capacity has increased from around 13 GW in 2000 to more than 100 GW in 2012. A consequence of this has been a failure for skills development to keep pace. This report shows that the European wind industry can play a key role in combatting unemployment.

Wind Energy: A Vision for Europe in 2030

September 2006

Wind energy is a European success story, but it is still just a shadow of what it could be. An enormous amount of fundamental, long term R&D, and policy development to build markets in the shorter term must be undertaken if wind energy is to become a major contributor to European electricity supply.

Strategic Research Agenda

July 2005

The energy sector of today faces a triple challenge: how to tackle climate change and meet rapidly increasing demand for energy while ensuring the security of its supply?
