- About 9,000 new jobs can be created by 2030 in the North East of Scotland if enough investments are made in the renewable energy sector.
- As per new research, thousands of jobs are at risk if the investment isn't hastened.
With the net-zero targets in sight, governments and companies are looking for innovative ways to switch to alternative energy sources that produce lesser emissions. Along with the environmental benefits, the switch will also give a boost to the job market, as per a new study.
The research, conducted by the Robert Gordon University, particularly refers to the North East of Scotland, saying that the region could create 9,000 more jobs by 2030 if it attracts sufficient funding in the renewable energy sector. It added that an investment of £17 billion in new manufacturing and installation capacity in renewables is required in the region.
