RESUMEN El sector energético está experimentando transformaciones sustanciales como consecuencia del desarrollo de las energías renovables, cuyo impulso no sólo aporta beneficios ambientales, sino que también reduce la dependencia energética y contribuye a la creación de empleo. En este trabajo realizamos un análisis prospectivo del empleo en el sector energético en Asturias hasta el año 2010, estudiando el impacto que sobre el mismo tienen las energías renovables en tres escenarios alternativos basados en las diferentes políticas energéticas. El análisis se completa con la identificación de las nuevas necesidades laborales y las competencias claves que los distintos tipos de energías renovables llevan asociadas. ABSTRACT Several changes are taking place in the energy sector as a result of the development of renewable energies, which offer the chance to decrease energy dependence, also creating employment. Therefore this article focuses on employment expectations generated by renewable energies in Asturias during the period 2006-2010. With this aim, we consider alternative scenarios according to a range of possible future renewable energy pathways. We also analyse the emergent professional profiles and required skills related to the new jobs generated in different renewable energy sources.
