Staffing the Energy Industry
A survey on current and future skills needs
Bill Hennessy, Partner (MERC Partners) recently completed an industry wide survey on ‘Current & Future Skills Needs’ relating to staffing within the Energy sector.
Having surveyed senior executives across the sector, the consensus findings indicate that Ireland has the opportunity to become a global leader in the energy sector if the right educational / vocational preparation strategies are developed and if R&D programmes are pursued in the areas where Ireland has stolen a lead – for example in wind, wave and ocean current energy. John Mullins, CEO of Bord Gais, joined Bill Hennessy for the launch of this report.
