By one estimate the demand for photovoltaic installers (or solar energy electricians) is projected to grow 52 percent from 2020 to 2030. Carol Weis and Neha Misra – both part of Remote Energy examine how we train up a new global workforce of solar installers. Remote Energy is a team comprised of electricians, educators and innovators in the photovoltaic industry who share a vision to catalyse change in the developing world.

During our conversation Carol and Neha take us on a journey of why the biggest opportunities are in training women; how to drill in a lockdown; and what you can do to be a part of creating thousands of new, green, quality jobs around the world.

This podcast forms part of a short series on putting people at the heart of climate action and what Climate Justice can mean for business. Visit our Climate Justice event and resources page to learn more, the post-event recordings will be added there shortly.
