The South-East Europe regional market for wind training is a microcosm of how neighbouring territories experience different patterns of growth and opportunities
GWO’s training standards have made strides across global wind markets, contributing to a safer and more competent workforce and enhancing employers’ safety performance while providing a compelling business case for training providers. With the number of GWO certified training providers more than tripling and the number of GWO trained wind technicians growing eight-fold during the last five years, the growth trajectory is still steep.
For this report GWO reviewed recent training records from GWO certified training provides in the following countries: Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Serbia and Slovenia. Growth in wind power in these markets will expand by 7.4GW from 2023 to 2027 (up 70%) and drive a 74% increase in demand for wind technicians involved in construction and O&M. To track opportunities GWO uses total addressable workforce as an indicator of the number of wind technicians needed for the construction and maintenance of wind power assets and in scope to receive GWO training.
