The UK is on a journey to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The energy sector plays a vital part in helping the country to make this transformational change, but to deliver on this ambition we need to build a Net Zero Energy Workforce*. We need people with the talent, the drive and the passion to help us tackle climate change.

Our texas hold'em poker free games looks at what skills and expertise the energy sector will need to help the UK reach its emissions target. Working with independent research partner Development Economics and YouGov we discovered that our industry needs to recruit for 400,000 jobs between now and 2050 to get the UK to net zero.

These opportunities will open up around the country, and will require a diverse mix of skills, from scientists and engineers, to communications professionals and data specialists.

There’s a lot of work to be done to attract the brightest and the best people to help us transform the energy industry to deliver a greener, cleaner future. For us it's first three community cards in texas hold'em.

* The roles included in this analysis are those involved in the operation, generation, transmission, distribution and retail of energy in the UK, as well as those in the supply chain related to building, upgrading, maintaining or operating infrastructure required to reach net

To succeed, every industry, workplace and home will need clean energy. Transforming our national infrastructure so we can generate and distribute clean energy takes time – and the clock is ticking. The energy sector must lead the way and act now to set the UK on the right course.

  • increase low carbon electricity generation by c.50%, from sources such as wind or solar power

  • install low carbon heating systems in c.2.8 million homes

  • develop carbon capture usage and storage (CCUS) technology, and develop hydrogen networks

  • install c.60,000 charging points to power c.11 million electric vehicles (EVs) .

Viable technologies are emerging. The political commitment is there. Investment will be needed. But none of this will happen if we don’t have the right people, with the right skills to deliver. Motivated to tackle climate change, equipped with the skills to transform our energy grid – the UK needs a Net Zero Energy Workforce.

  • loss of existing talent due to a baby boomer retirement crunch

  • competition for skilled workers from other sectors,

  • such as finance and technology

  • limited pipeline of young people choosing science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) qualifications

  • lack of gender diversity.

National Grid commissioned an independent research partner, Development Economics, to measure the scale of the challenge. This research found that the UK’s energy sector needs hundreds of thousands of people to fill 400,000 roles in the Net Zero Energy Workforce. Of this, 260,000 will be in new roles, while 140,000 will be replacing those who have left the workforce.

  • 117,000 between 2020 – 2030

  • 152,000 between 2031 - 2040

  • 131,000 between 2041 - 2050.

Tens of thousands will be needed in every region across the UK, with significant employment opportunity in the North where nearly 100,000 jobs will become available, the Midlands (over 50,000 jobs) and the devolved nations of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland (nearly 90,000 jobs). Net Zero Energy Workforce jobs will include civil, mechanical and electrical engineers, data analysts, machine learning experts and skilled tradespeople. New roles linked to electric vehicles, hydrogen, and carbon capture technology will emerge.

The good news is that people are increasingly motivated by a job with purpose, and the energy sector has a clear mission at its heart. Over three quarters of UK adults (78%) want to play a part in reaching the UK’s net zero goal and more than half (57%) want to work for an organisation that helps get us there. Tapping into this powerful motivator is key to building a diverse and effective Net Zero Energy Workforce.

National Grid believes everyone with a stake in the UK’s energy system must align behind strategic priorities that address the challenge and collaborate to achieve them at scale.

To succeed we must:
  • retain and retrain existing employees

  • reframe a job in the energy sector as joining the Net Zero Energy Workforce

  • inspire the next generation to choose STEM qualifications.

Transforming the UK’s energy system to meet our net zero target is one of the greatest challenges the country faces. To succeed we must be single minded in our focus and collaborative in our approach to building a skilled and motivated Net Zero Energy Workforce. It’s the job that can’t wait.
