The transition to greener economies requires action on the different dimensions of sustainability. The rational use of energy can play a crucial role in a country’s contribution to the global sustainable future.
Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) plays a crucial role in the transition to cleaner energy, as the skills needed in the provision of sustainable energy will be acquired through it.
This paper discusses the developments in the renewable energy sector and their impact on jobs and training. It compiles and makes an analysis of how the available technologies in the market will further develop corresponding with global trends in the energy efficiency and renewable energy sectors, and the corresponding capacities that are needed to make the transition from fossil fuel-based consumption to renewable energies.
