Clean Energy Could Create 1 Million Jobs


Australia could create a million new jobs through backing renewable energy with new transmission lines and the creation of a new manufacturing industry, according to a report to be released on Monday by Beyond Zero Emissions.

The think tank, backed by Atlassian’s Mike Cannon-Brookes, the James Kirby Foundation and the Lenko Foundation, will release a new paper detailing how the program would work.

The plan is based on building 90 gigawatts of solar and wind energy and harvesting that through the economy.

Transmission lines cost maintenance dollars, look at new technology that can generate on sites closer to the areas it is required.

There is technology other than solar and wind, the think tanks (MCB) need to support other technologies and not just the ones that return the quickest dollars.

Waste to Energy is the area that needs to be really focused on as it reduces infrastructure costs and helps the environment more by utilizing the waste.
