Building the battery workforce: a matchmaking event

“Bridging the skills gap: unlocking talent in energy storage”

 Energy storage will be a key component of the sustainable energy system of the future. As energy storage technology accelerates, a highly skilled workforce along the whole value chain needs to be developed and strengthened.

During this matchmaking event, InnoEnergy brings together key players in energy in order to identify and develop the missing skills needed for a highly qualified workforce in energy storage. As a course producer you can get in touch with the HR experts Learning & Development within the energy industry and tackle the skills gap first-hand. As an HR expert L&D you get the chance to influence the battery education offer directly in just one day. In this way, we aim at re-skilling and upskilling employees with the purpose of creating a broader talent pool.
