Gemserv provides data-driven green skills and jobs insight at a regional and national level, using our industry contacts on the ground and economic modelling capabilities. Our reports have been used to provide the evidence and business case for local skills funding.
For over 15 years, we have been at the forefront of retrofit and low carbon energy policy development at local and national levels. As authors of the Local Government Association’s report on green skills and several regional reports for local and combined authorities, our team has a wealth of experience in developing evidence based reports to support local decision making and national policy advocacy activities.
Combining deep low-carbon policy knowledge, with our team’s economic modelling capabilities and industry and academic stakeholder network, we can assess the current state of green employment in regional areas and evidence evolving skills gaps as the UK transitions to net zero. Our ongoing work with several trade associations (including Hydrogen UK, the Heat Pump Association, the National Insulation Association and the Sustainable Energy Association) on government policy, training, and skills, enables our team to contribute proprietary knowledge to green skills and jobs research.
Alongside BNP Paribas and TeachFirst, our team is working to inspire the leaders of tomorrow to tackle climate change through the ‘Leaders for a Changing World’ programme – an enhanced school curriculum which improves access to climate education.
Our team is experienced at undertaking qualitative and quantitative research with a particular specialism in green skills. We have supported the development of regional and sub-regional policy in relation to energy efficiency, infrastructure development and skills and training. We have extensive networks throughout the energy efficiency and low carbon heat supply chain with strong relationships with key actors for example MCS, the Retrofit Academy, heat pump manufacturers, energy efficiency installers, trade associations and energy advice agencies.
