The need for skilled human resources in the sector is large and so far has not been fully addressed. While the sector is still nascent, it is critical to address the development of human resources at all organizational levels for renewable energy enterprises and financial institutions - operations, sales and marketing, finance, servicing, research and development and community involvement. This time and resource intensive need is currently being met directly by the entrepreneurs- who are already stretched for resources. Individual organizations are forced to invest in the most basic skill training even while the initiative would better the sector as a whole. To reduce the cost of training and skill development incurred by individual entrepreneurs, there must be a thrust on creating curriculum and teaching modules in institutions such as ITIs, RUDSETIs, Bank training centers, etc for training of Renewable Energy technicians, operators, micro-entrepreneurs and bank managers.
