Many skilled people are needed to carry out the energy transition. But in the installation sector in the Netherlands alone, 30% of vacancies are unfilled. How are we going to make sure there are enough professionals?
In recent months, in collaboration with de nieuwe draai, Alfa-college and construction company BAM, we have been working on Energiehub050 — a temporary practice centre in Groningen that trains students to work with the latest sustainable technology. Energiehub050 is being realised together with the most innovative market players in the field of energy and circular building. On Thursday 24 November, we co-host a pitch event at Forum Groningen where 11 of these sustainable frontrunners will present themselves.
