Final Labour Market Model: The Renewing Futures Labour Market Information (RFLMI) system consists of six models that gather data from a variety of sources and combine measures to arrive at an assessment of labour markets for twenty-six key occupations. These assessments, and the measures in the related models, are projected over the period from 2012 to 2022 in nine regions and for three scenarios. Components of the system are described here and preliminary estimates and projections are provided for an initial review.
Final Employer Survey: The Renewing Futures Employer survey was intended to provide a statistically valid picture of the employers in the Renewable Energy industries, the occupations that they employ and their key human resources issues. The field research consisted of a national telephone survey of employers. Questions were specific to the renewable energy sectors covering: solar, wind, geothermal, biomass, hydro and marine and their relationships to the traditional electricity sector. The survey was targeted at human resources managers and specialists within the companies. The downloadable report provides a summary and analysis of the responses to the survey questionnaire.
