Power and Energy Solutions, the industry-leading publication from P and G Media, is out today. Packed with essential wind analysis, comment and features, this latest issue focuses on the green collar worker shortage.
As the industry is acutely aware, there aren’t enough skilled personnel to fill the jobs that will satisfy the environmental requirements of many companies.
Combined with a downturn in the numbers of students taking engineering courses, the recruitment problem continues to plague organisations who would like to go forward and invest in the green economy. PES devotes considerable space to these issues and airs the views of those people inside the green recruitment industry.
The magazine also features an exclusive interview with Christian Kjaer, of the EWEA; Andrew Cahn, Chief Executive, UK Trade and Investment, focuses on renewables growth; and Stavros Dimas of the European Commission makes an impassioned address on the state of the Copenhagen United Climate Agreement.
The magazine travels to Germany, and the efforts that country is making to be the market leader in Wind technology and initiatives in Europe. The introduction of the ‘feed-in tariff’, which offers above-market rates for electricity sold to the grid from renewable energy sources, has been keenly watched across the Continent, not least because the Germans suggest that its introduction will herald a renewables boom as big as Germany’s car industry is now. Plus, the magazine takes a close look at the upcoming 2009 EWEC Fair, which this year is being held in Marseille.
Published and distributed throughout Europe, Power and Energy Solutions magazine is the premier publication for all matters wind. Featuring contributions from some of the biggest companies operating within the renewables sector and many of the executives on the front line, it’s your indispensable guide to what’s going on in your industry.
