    MORE UK JOBS FROM NEW ENERGY THAN FOSSILS

    Green jobs debate should look beyond short-term benefits, says UKERC report

    5 November 2014 (UK Energy Research Center)

    “…[R]enewable energy and energy efficiency create up to ten times more jobs per unit of electricity generated or saved than fossil fuels…[But] labour intensity may not be a desirable quality and support for green jobs should not solely focus on short-term gains but also look towards long-term economic growth…UKERC’s Technology and Policy Assessment team[found]...Electricity from coal and gas creates 0.1-0.2 gross jobs per gigawatt-hour generated…Electricity from wind creates 0.05-0.5 gross job per gigawatt-hour generated…Energy efficiency creates 0.3-1.0 gross jobs per gigawatt-hour saved…Electricity from solar creates 0.4-1.1 gross jobs per gigawatt-hour generated…Results show that renewable energy and energy efficiency create up to 1 job per gigawatt-hour more than fossil fuels and when the economy is underperforming, such as during a recession, it is sensible to focus government expenditure on these labour-intensive sectors…[But employment] in the energy industries also needs to be considered in the light of wider macroeconomic questions. If the economy is near full employment then high labour intensity may not provide a strong rationale for government support…” click here for more
