Job stability in renewable energy

Analysis shows that if Australia harnessed its renewable energy opportunity, our economy could add:

  • over $100 billion in value
  • and over 400,000 good, reliable jobs in renewable industry and manufacturing by 2040.

In the next decade, coal and gas-related jobs are set to drop by 6,000 or more than 50%, but the growth in renewables jobs can outpace this decline.

Demand for skilled labour in large-scale renewable energy is forecast to double from around 12,500 jobs in 2022 to 25,000 in 2027.
