Renewable Energy | Positioning yourself effectively within Japan

Are you an energy professional considering career opportunities in Japan's renewable energy industry? In this article, LVI Associates explores key trends, opportunities, and expert insights shared during a recent webinar, providing valuable tips to propel your career in this burgeoning field. ​The Landscape of Japan's Renewable Energy MarketThe driving force behind the surge in renewable energy adoption is multifaceted, ranging from addressing global warming concerns to the pursuit of energy security. Issues such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions, a shift away from traditional nuclear power, and stagnant progress in nuclear applications are steering the demand for geothermal, solar, and wind power. Additionally, favorable government initiatives and advancements in renewable energy technology have contributed to the sector's expansion. Industry Insights: Opportunities Across Sectors Solar Power: Japan is emerging as a global solar energy leader, propelled by supportive government policies. The Japanese Environment Ministry's proposal to add a substantial 20 GW of annual solar power by 2030 positions the country among the top solar energy markets globally [i]. The adoption of Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) and the new FIP policy is further accentuating the growth potential. Wind Power: With a cumulative installed capacity of 4.80 GW in 2022, Japan is committed to a CAGR exceeding 14% from 2022 to 2035 [ii]. Offshore wind projects, driven by advancements in turbine size, supply chain enhancement, grid connectivity, and significant foreign investments, position Japan as a key player in the global offshore wind market. Energy Storage: As intermittent renewable energy sources gain prominence, energy storage solutions like batteries become essential. The Japanese government's commitment, including a substantial $1.8 billion in subsidies for storage-related projects, underlines the strategic importance of energy storage in stabilizing the grid and facilitating renewable energy integration [iii]. Hydrogen: Japan's decarbonization strategy involves clean coal and hydrogen alongside nuclear power. The government's plan to generate $107 billion in funding for hydrogen supply over the next 15 years highlights the pivotal role hydrogen plays in Japan's energy transition [iv]. Government Initiatives and Talent Demand: A Symbiotic Relationship The Japanese government's ambitious renewable energy targets for 2030, aiming for 36-38% of power supplies to be from renewables, have profound implications for companies and talent demand. Changes in government policies and regulations steer market dynamics, emphasizing the critical need for industry players to stay abreast of even minor regulatory shifts. These policy changes also shape talent needs in the industry. For instance, the transition from the feed-in tariff (FIT) regime to the FIP regime creates a demand for professionals experienced in FIP, non-FIT, and cPPA. The current trends in the Japanese solar and wind energy industry highlight a growing demand for experienced business development candidates and project originators. These professionals play a crucial role in bringing in new projects, investors, and staying attuned to evolving policies and regulations, thereby steering company projects in the right direction. Compensation Trends: Beyond Cash Benefits The energy industry's traditional salary perceptions are undergoing a transformation as subsidies and investments flow into renewable technologies. While compensation remains important, job seekers are increasingly prioritizing non-monetary benefits. In addition to base salaries and bonuses, companies are offering retirement allowances, RSU stock benefits, housing support, extended paid leaves, and various other perks. Flexible work arrangements, such as improved work-from-home policies, are becoming more prevalent, with international companies leading the way in providing flexibility. Some even offer benefits like company cars, flight tickets for travel to home countries, or weekly Shinkansen round trip tickets, setting them apart in a competitive hiring market. Transitioning into the Industry: Unlocking Transferable Skills For professionals considering a transition into the renewable energy sector, the industry welcomes diverse backgrounds. Globally, offshore wind candidates often hail from the offshore oil and gas industry, leveraging transferable skills applicable to renewable projects. In Japan, where offshore oil and gas production history is limited, companies seek talents from related fields such as port and harbour infrastructure construction, marine architecture, steel manufacturing, and heavy electrical machinery manufacturing. This openness provides opportunities for individuals with transferable skills and a keen interest in renewable energy. Transferable Skills in Demand: A Holistic Approach The renewable energy sector's growth creates numerous opportunities, and industry players are keen on accessing transferable skills. Professionals from the oil and gas industry find their skills in high demand, especially those with experience in project management and construction. Engineers from an Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) background are valued for their ability to manage large-scale infrastructure projects. Other sought-after skills include logistical expertise, which is crucial for supply chain management, and soft skills that align with a company's culture. Transferable skills are a key focus for companies seeking candidates from diverse backgrounds. Navigating Growth Opportunities As the renewable energy industry in Japan continues to expand, professionals can capitalize on the wealth of opportunities by staying informed, understanding industry trends, and cultivating transferable skills. The sector's growth creates distinct career stages: 1-2 years: Associate/Junior roles 3-5 years: Senior/Team Leader/Project Engineer roles 5-10 years: Transition to management roles - Project Manager/Project Director/BD Manager 10+ years: Leadership roles - GM/Directors/Senior Managers The renewable energy industry's growth in Japan presents exciting opportunities for career advancement. Whether you're a seasoned professional or considering a career change, understanding the industry's nuances, staying updated on market trends, and showcasing transferable skills can unlock a rewarding and impactful career in Japan's thriving renewable energy sector. ​Browse our opportunities and seek guidanceEntering a new industry can be challenging, but with the right guidance, professionals can navigate this transition successfully.

Addressing Australia's Engineering Talent Shortage: Practical Approaches

The shortage of skilled engineers in Australia is a pressing concern shared by everyone involved in infrastructure development. This deficit is hampering the country's ability to execute crucial infrastructure projects effectively. KPMG's Annual Leadership Survey underscores a major worry among leaders, with up to 77% losing sleep over the challenge of finding the right talent. Similarly, a report by Professionals Australia titled “Engineering a Better Future” estimates a shortfall of 200,000 engineering professionals. Elizabeth Pugh, Associate Director at LVI Associates Australia, shares her insights on this engineering profession gap and delves into how organisations can overcome it by leveraging international talent. Read about her observations below:There's a general consensus that international engineers play a crucial role in bridging the immediate skill gap. However, the focus on nurturing local talent through education and enhancing the profession's appeal is equally important for long-term solutions. The debate intensifies around optimally utilising overseas talent, with barriers still in place. Dr. Maryam Raji from Melbourne University's Faculty of Business and Economics emphasises the need for educational reforms and increased professional attractiveness to develop local talent. She refers to Engineering Australia’s report to the Department of Home Affairs, which reveals that 70% of engineers in Australia are international-born, yet many are either unemployed or not working in their field. My experience as a professional services engineering recruiter in Australia confirms this. Frequently, international engineers with extensive global experience are overlooked due to their lack of familiarity with Australian building codes and regulations. Common reasons for rejection include: Time constraints: Firms often lack the time to train new hires on local regulations due to pressing project deadlines.Fear of talent loss: Concerns that trained engineers might leave for competitors.Negative assumptions: Doubts about international engineers' ability to adapt to local market regulations.As a practical and business-oriented manager, I understand these concerns, but it's clear that Australia could better leverage international engineering talent. A national, or even organisational-wide, integrated strategy could help to address these challenges.Solutions include:Conversion courses: Creating a mandatory framework for educating and testing experienced engineers on Australian building and regulatory requirements, similar to initiatives in healthcare and legal sectors.Positive workplace culture for retention: Ensuring a supportive work environment is essential for retaining all employees, regardless of their origin.Dispelling myths: Recognising the value of international engineers who have successfully adapted and contributed in various countries, including Australia.In short, there are likely many other viable solutions to this persistent and growing issue. What other strategies could effectively address Australia's engineering talent gap?

​Taiwan's Green Shift: Exploring Opportunities in the Renewable Energy Market and Prioritizing Occupational Health

Taiwan is embarking on a remarkable journey toward achieving a sustainable and green future.

Diversification of Energy SourcesTaiwan's ambitious target to phase out nuclear power and increase the share of renewables in its energy mix has made the island a hotspot for investments in clean energy infrastructure. The government's commitment to sourcing at least 20% of its electricity from renewables by 2025 and achieving complete carbon neutrality by 2050 has led to a surge in renewable energy projects, particularly in solar, wind, hydro, and biomass energy.Solar Energy Potential Taiwan's geographical location provides ample sunlight throughout the year, making it an ideal region for solar energy generation. The government's drive to encourage solar installations and reduce regulatory barriers has attracted domestic and international investors, and has been further enhanced by favorable feed-in tariffs and incentives.Wind Power AdvancementsTaiwan's offshore wind energy sector has also gained significant momentum due to the island's strong coastal winds, making it an excellent candidate for offshore wind farms. The government's active support in terms of policies and funding, and international partnerships and collaborations bringing in expertise, have contributed to the rapid growth of offshore wind energy projects. These projects not only contribute to renewable energy employment but also have a positive economic impact on local communities, driving job creation and infrastructure development. Occupational Health: A Key PriorityWhile Taiwan's transition to renewable energy brings numerous opportunities, it has also brought attention to the importance of safeguarding the health and safety of workers involved in these projects. The government and industry stakeholders have placed a strong emphasis on ensuring high standards of occupational health, so stringent safety regulations, comprehensive training programs, and the incorporation of cutting-edge technologies are shaping safe working environments. Prioritizing occupational health not only protects workers but also ensures the longevity of sustainable energy careers. Renewable Energy Employment and Worker BenefitsAccording to our latest Renewable Energy Salary Guide, which surveyed over 400 renewable energy professionals across the APAC region, medical cover was the most common benefit received for Taiwan's offshore wind professionals, with nearly a quarter (23%) having access to this benefit. Extra holiday came in second at 19%, and 17% received a travel allowance. These benefits are all important for employees’ health and well-being, and all count towards a more attractive compensation package. When companies consider careers for these sustainable energy professionals, take into consideration how your salary and benefits package can be competitive and attractive. Without hiring and retaining the right talent, renewable energy projects will struggle to get off the ground. Investor Confidence and Economic GrowthTaiwan's commitment to renewable energy and occupational health not only aligns with global sustainability goals but also fosters investor confidence. As the renewable energy sector expands, it creates a ripple effect throughout the economy, generating job opportunities, driving innovation, and enhancing local communities. The economic impact of wind energy, especially in wind farm development, even has the potential to reshape the landscape of the region. Taiwan's Green Shift Towards Renewable EnergyTaiwan's green shift toward renewable energy is a multifaceted journey that encompasses environmental stewardship, economic growth, and occupational health. The nation's dedication to diversifying its energy sources and ensuring the well-being of its workforce has set the stage for a promising future.
