Wind power is expected to expand faster in Sweden as politicians look for a balance between new and traditional energy sources and green development is being fuelled by rapid technological development enabling large-scale energy production, an international recruitment firm specialising in the sustainability industry said.
"Sweden's wind resources, low population density and availability of balancing sources of energy provide great growth potential for further advancement into the wind sector", Allen & York said in a statement.
"The growth and profitability of Swedish wind power drives an increasingly active market, attracting energy producers, developers, utilities, and financial stakeholders; which as a result leads to an increase of job opportunities within Sweden and the wider Nordic region".
Allen & York predicts that 12,000 jobs will be created in operation and maintenance,
and manufacturing across Sweden; meanwhile strengthening of the grid will also lead to vacancies within grid and technology and engineering.
Following the Swedish government announcing plans only last year that 2,000 new wind turbines will be built over the next ten years, Allen & York said it's likely to see a surge in planning, developing and construction roles.
