Study on human resources development with regard to demographic change and the German Energiewende

Demographic change and the prospective shortage of skilled personnel in the energy and water industry require associations to take according measures, especially in recruitment and training, in order to secure the required expertise in future. The GWS supports the energy and water associations’ vocational education committees in finding solutions to this challenge by means of industry-related analyses and trend descriptions. The outcome of the QuBe project on future professions and qualifications substantially supports the search for solutions.
