The Renewable Skills Campaign aims to expand the scope and skills of the energy trades in Alberta.
The Renewable Skills Campaign is designed to assist un- (or under) employed oil and gas workers and Indigenous community members in expanding their skills set to include renewable energy projects. This hands-on training contributes to reducing GHG emissions while increasing cleantech infrastructure in communities.
An initial pilot project with the Louis Bull Tribe involved energy companies, oil and gas workers and members of the Tribe being trained on a solar installation on the local daycare. This pilot set the stage for scaling the Renewable Skills initiative and for a national upskilling campaign for energy workers.
