Marie Claesson organizes the work with the Swedish Energy Agency’s government assignment to coordinate a national mobilisation to secure skills provision for the electrification of society. Electrification generates a broad and extensive need for relevant skills for everything from permit processing to the construction and operation of various types of power plants, infrastructure and industrial plants. The short term need of these skills are great and the skills gap is an urgent challenge. Marie has worked for a long time with research funding and funding of knowledge building through research and demonstration. The topics have varied from energy efficiency in buildings to research on humans in energy systems and society. She is the also in the board of Nordic Energy Research, the platform for co-operative energy research and policy development under the auspices of the Nordic Council of Ministers.
