UN Forecasts Growth in Clean Energy Jobs
Coal employment, in particular, is forecast to decrease in absolute terms while the number of oil and natural gas jobs should remain steady although their proportion in energy jobs mix will drop.
The big winners would be in energy efficiency and thermal power. The job mix is dependent upon investing 2% of global GDP to renewable energy and energy efficiency, according to the UN model.
