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.
This new report published on 15 June 2022 details the successes achieved by the 30 employer organisations that form the Energy & Utilities Skills Partnership (EUSP), chaired by Michael Lewis, Chief Executive of E.ON.
These successes include the greater representation of disabilities across the sector, repurposing the Smart Metering Network as the Net Zero Technology Skills Group, and leading the drive for a “Green Collar” approach to green jobs.
The EUSP is announcing a new approach to delivering its strategic skills priorities for the sector with the streamlining of its cross-sector working groups. There are now four groups working to meet the sector’s skills needs.
