Green Tech Skillnet

The Green Tech Skillnet is an enterprise led network facilitating the workforce and development needs of the Irish renewable energy industry. The network is funded by Skillnet Ireland from the National Training Fund, through the Department of Education and Skills. The network in its previous guise as Wind Skillnet, successfully delivered value add training and networking activities to the wind industry over the past 10 years through its contracting organisation, the Irish Wind Energy Association (IWEA). Since 2014, the network has successfully engaged 1,149 trainees over 2,050 training days equating to approximately 25% of those employed within the wind industry in Ireland.

Reflecting the diversification of Irelands energy system and with an overarching responsibility to EU targets and the mitigation of climate change, the network will support the optimisation of renewables on the Irish grid in the short, medium and long term through learning and development initiatives. In this regard the network aims to deliver impactful training and networking events to a growing workforce, facilitate thought leaders within the renewables sector whilst contributing to Ireland’s deep decarbonisation and energy transition.
