What are the latest renewable energy hotspots?

The power and renewable energy sector have grown rapidly in recent years. According to research, renewables will account for almost 95% of the increase in global power capacity by 2026. This has been a result of improvements in technology, lower costs of renewable energy sources, increased competitiveness of battery storage, as well as global efforts to reduce the damaging effects of climate change. Power and renewables staffing and recruitment are also becoming more competitive as the sector has grown. There are many renewable energy hotspots throughout different parts of the world, all of which play an important role in producing solar power. So, as the surge for solar power and sustainability increases, we’ve taken a look at the latest renewable energy hotspots below.

Wind power

Australia has become one of the world’s largest producers of clean energy and it’s rich in renewable energy hotspots, such as wind power, hydrogen and solar energy. Statistics have shown that 24 per cent of the country’s electricity came from renewable energy. Several Australian companies have moved toward renewable energy investment, such as Macquarie Group LTD, who according to Reuters has planned to launch an offshore wind energy business. There’s no question that the rapid growth will most certainly create thousands of power and renewables jobs in the future, as well as have a positive impact on power and renewables staffing.

Solar energy

Over the last decade, solar power – mostly in the form of wind turbines and solar panels – has recorded huge levels of growth and it’s expected to accelerate further in 2022. This is due to climate change concerns and the increased support for environmental, social, and governance (ESG). In 2021, it was reported that Morocco had established itself as a leader in solar energy, and the country has pledged to increase its renewable electricity mix to 52% by 2030, which is partly made up of solar power. Therefore, Morocco is one of the many countries that has emerged as a key renewable energy hotspot. While the world still heavily relies on oil and gas, many countries around the world are shifting to solar power. This will also enable power and renewables staffing and recruitment agencies to offer more solar power job opportunities.

Tidal energy

Tidal energy is another major renewable energy source, which is produced using the movement of ocean waters during the tides. The tidal energy is harnessed and converted into electrical power from the turbine through a cable network. Scotland has long been one of the leaders in tidal technology, as well as renewables as a whole. According to research, in 2018, 98% of Scotland’s electricity was generated by wind energy. However, the nation will have a new hotspot in Pentland Firth as a new project – Meygen – is being developed, and it’s currently the world’s biggest planned tidal project.

What’s the future of renewables?

Renewable energy has certainly arrived around the world and technology will certainly play a crucial role in its widespread adoption. Much of the challenges in making the shift to renewables will be around the challenge of switching from fossil fuels to renewable fuels, and ensuring the change happens smoothly. Overall, with the increase of renewable energy hotspots and projects, renewables are set for a bright future tackling the world’s climate problems.
