According to research by The Australia Institute, a rapid shift to renewable energy wouldn’t just clean up electricity generation, it would create an employment boom with as many as 60,000 new jobs!
And the total would at least match the numbers employed in coal-fired electricity generation, new research released today has found. 👷👷👷 From 7300 to 12,500 jobs a year would be needed for operation and maintenance of electricity generation without fossil fuels, and when manufacturing of equipment is included, the employment pool could be boosted by 18,000 to 59,000 jobs, the research found.
