Renewable Energy Industry Overview

The renewable energy industry is pivotal in the climate challenge and offers a wide range of career opportunities for graduates and experienced professionals. As we continue to focus on the climate change by reducing carbon emissions, the renewable energy industry will experience significant growth in the next few years. For example, offshore wind currently provides 26,000 direct and indirect jobs nationwide. This figure is forecast to increase to over 69,000 jobs by 2026. Many of these jobs are located in the Northeast, Yorkshire, the Humber, East Anglia, and Scotland.

Regarding solar, studies believe that renewables will provide up to 95% of the net increase in global power capacity by 2025, with the majority of this coming from the solar industry.

There is a considerable amount of career pathways available within the renewable energy industry. A single renewable energy project requires a diverse range of people and skills, including engineers and ecologists to business developers and planning managers. Work can vary from an office or laboratory to working outdoor or at sea.

Approximately 6,500 businesses now operate within the renewable industry, and job opportunities are not only confined to just the London and Southeast. The northern region is responsible for nearly 11,000 renewable energy jobs. Today, the industry faces a skills shortage for many engineers, from general mechanical and environmental engineers to more niche areas such as wind energy engineers and specialist scientists such as ecologists.

Average starting salaries for renewable energy professionals typically range from £19,000 to £28,000, but this can vary depending on the job type, company, and location. With experience, you could earn a salary ranging from £35,000 to £60,000. Salaries can be even higher at the most senior levels within large companies. For example, the average solar engineer salary in the UK starts at £35,000 or an average rate of £32 per hour for contract work. More experienced solar professionals can make up to £45,000 per year.
