What is it?
The Energy & Utilities Skills Partnership (EUSP) published its inaugural Workforce Renewal and Skills Strategy in 2017. This pioneering piece of work was the first of its kind for the energy and utilities sector providing a framework for delivering all the required essential services and the government National Infrastructure Delivery Plan (NIDP). The strategy was guided by a Council of nearly 30 senior leaders from across gas, power, water and waste management asset owners, retailers and the supply chain partners.
Since then the sector has experienced a period of unprecedented change. Our operating environment has been transformed and our skills challenges have evolved in response. In this document we review the progress we have made against the 10 strategic priorities we set in 2017, highlighting key areas of progress and where there is still more do to.
On Tuesday 9 June the Energy & Utilities Skills Partnership launch the Workforce Renewal and Skills Strategy 2020 – 2025.
