Renewable energy jobs: future growth in Australia - 2017 supplement

20 Nov 2017
Description

The independent modelling, commissioned by the Climate Council, confirms there will be significantly fewer jobs in the national electricity sector under the National Energy Guarantee (NEG), compared to Australia’s current projected energy employment levels in the sector.

This report shows that the NEG’s low-end projection of 28 per cent renewable energy in 2030 would result in 6,600 fewer jobs in the entire electricity sector, compared to ‘business as usual’. In addition, the modelling indicates there would also be 20,000 fewer jobs, compared to 50 per cent renewable energy by 2030.
