Skills and Talent for the Green Transition - Boosting Regional Competitiveness

The webinar intends to promote a balance between different perspectives and endeavours which will lead to a conversation around how skills assessment from the ERASMUS+ ALBATTS and the GreenSkills4H2 projects can be adapted to cross-sector green jobs. Thus, to see in what way education and skills development can add value to the skills that the labour market requires and how this in turn can contribute to increased competitiveness within the different EU regions.

Skills Transition in the Battery Sector
Skills Transition in the Battery Sector

The battery industry is a relatively new field in Europe. Can human resources from other and potentially declining industries be transferred to the battery ecosystem? Which industries are more similar and more prone to provide successful workers to the battery sector? What are the training programs already in place to ease that transition?

These and other relevant topics were addressed in this webinar.

BMS and Control Systems: Job Roles, Skills & Competencies

The rapid electrification of society needs not only batteries but also systems that support their use. Battery Management Systems (BMS) are necessary for monitoring and controlling batteries in a wide range of applications, from electric vehicles to battery energy storage.

In this webinar, we discussed how BMS is applied. We also took a look at the BMS-related job roles and learned about the related skills and competencies.

Preparing a Sustainable Clean Energy Ecosystem - Skills for Battery Systems

The EU has set itself the target goal of becoming the frontrunner in achieving a wealthy and green Planet.

While promoting a green economy and jobs in this area, Europe is now facing the challenge of energy dependency. It is crucial to invest in renewable energy sources, to create the infrastructure and to improve preparedness to produce energy storage systems autonomously.

The workshop provided a detailed overview of the skills and job roles required to implement a reliable battery value-chain.

Autonomous Operation and Virtual Reality in Maritime Applications: Job roles and skills

The Maritime industry is at the forefront in autonomous operations. We read much about self-driving cars, but traditionally this is small scale pilots. In Maritime, autonomous operations have a longer history and the projects are larger. Innovation and technology development is rapid and advanced in Maritime. Leading battery technology is a key driver for the industry. 

Autonomous operations drive the use of Virtual Reality and advanced simulation technology, to train new skills and competences for exiting new job roles in the Maritime Industry. 

In this webinar we shared our industry insight with the audience.

Recycling Electric Vehicles’ Batteries
Recycling Electric Vehicles’ Batteries

Recycling the Lithium-ion batteries at the end of their life could provide important economic benefits, reduce the need for new mineral extraction, and provide resilience against vulnerable links and risks in the supply chain. 

However, the challenges associated with battery disassembly are numerous, be they legislative or technical. For most remanufacturing and recycling processes, battery packs must be disassembled to module-level at least. This is currently mostly done manually. The weights and high voltages of traction batteries mean that qualified employees with high-voltage training, as well as specialized tools to prevent electrocution of operators or short-circuiting of the pack, are required for such dismantling.
