  • The green transition and job opportunities
    Thousands of new jobs will be created over the next few years to meet global climate targets and political ambitions. For the European wind energy sector, estimates say that 150,000 new positions will be needed by 2030. But what type of jobs do we need in the energy sector as a whole and what career opportunities are available?

Track 3: Market and supply chain trends – Electrification Stage, Hall E
Global objectives for the green transition are ambitious, whether in Denmark, France, the USA or India. But at this time of war in Europe, an ongoing energy crisis, inflation and the threat of higher trade barriers, there is huge pressure on the green energy value chain.
In this session we will focus on the massive expansion of renewable energy worldwide, the leading markets, and the opportunities and challenges this brings to the entire supply chain – including global market trends, consolidation and new business models.
