Western Australia's Sustainable Energy Industry Skills and Training Needs Analysis



The Sustainable Energy Association (SEA) commissioned Climate Change Response to undertake an Office of Energy funded project to determine what skills are required by the sustainable energy industry in Western Australia and any gaps that need to be addressed. This will in turn provide the information needed for developing strategies to ensure an appropriate supply of suitably skilled individuals to meet the expected increase in demand over coming years.


The project was completed in February 2011 and the report is currently being reviewed. It is expected that the final report will be published on the SEA website later in February.

“… companies in the fledgling green economy are struggling to find workers with the skills needed to perform the work that needs to be done. Indeed, there are signs that shortages of skilled labor could put the brakes on green expansion…There is thus a need to put appropriate education and training arrangements in place.”
