Last update on this barrier



Due to the immaturity of some technologies (small wind, geothermal, marine) there is a lack of training and a lack of trust regarding these technologies.

The barrier is still relevant, however, it has to be mentioned that the National and Energy Climate Plan (NECP 2020) accounts for the lack of training issue and proposes to overcome it articulating education strategies with local governments, autonomous communities and the private sector. The NECP points out the need of determining the professional profiles required throughout the value chain for the RE technologies in general, and also drawing the attention of future professionals and talents to the job opportunities offered by the energy transition. These measures are still not implemented, so the barrier remains relevant.
