Jobs in Renewable Energy

The European Commission’s study on the impact of renewable energy policy on economic growth and employment in the European Union (Employ-RES) indicate that EU 20% renewable energy target can deliver 2.8 million jobs and that biomass, wind and hydro technologies are currently the most important for job opportunities.

According to the study, in 2005, the renewable energy sector employed 1.4 million people among the member states with a gross value of 58 billion EUR (approximately $80 billion) with higher employment expected particularly in the member states that joined the European Union (EU) in 2004 and 2007. Implementation of the renewable energy policy will generate about 410,000 additional jobs and 0.24 percent additional GDP in the EU-27 in 2020.

However, the study indicates that current RES support policies will result in final energy consumption of 14 percent by 2020 and 17 percent by 2030, which indicates a need for improved policies to reap maximum economic benefits from renewable energy. The study also finds that more innovative technologies such as photovoltaic, offshore wind, solar thermal electricity and second-generation biofuels require more financial support in the short term, and will be key to achieving the EU’s 2020 target.

In terms of greenhouse emissions, European finance ministers may draw on shipping and airlines for money to help pay poor nations deal with climate change, according to draft proposals, report Reuters. EU finance ministers meeting in Luxembourg on June 9 are expected to identify possible finance sources for poor countries that could help develop drought-resistant crops or new water sources, according to Reuters.

Greenhouse gas emissions from shipping and airline sectors, which have been growing steadily over the past 15 years, will be evaluated at a United Nations meeting in Copenhagen in December to find a new global deal on fighting climate change, according to Reuters. The key issue will be finding the finance needed to persuade developing nations to cut their carbon dioxide emissions. However, poor nations would be expected to deliver concrete proof of emissions cuts in return for the cash, reports Reuters.

    salut,
    sincer ma tot intreb care-i treaba cu joburile astea in windenergy. astept sa avem parcuri in functiune, probabil ca muncitorii(sau tehnicienii) care or sa faca mentenanta or sa castige mult mai mult ca mine, care ma ocup de proiectarea parcului, incepand cu configurarea aparaturii pt stalpul de masura, monotorizarea si mentenanta, si terminand cu studiul energetic intr-un soft de specialitate, pt care am facut si un curs in danemarca. ce e greu e la noi ca inginer, norocul meu ca inca mai ma consider student dat fiind ca fac si un master, dar ma deprima c-am facut o facultate ca sa muncesc pe 1500ron, sa nu-mi permit nici macar o chirie. as vrea sa nu renunt la domeniul asta pt ca tin la natura si imi place ce fac,dar asta-i singura satisfactie.astept deci joburile alea multe, sa-mi depun cv-u pt un post de tehnician.

      Era un banc cu hamsterul si soricelul de care mi-am adus aminte. Lasand gluma la o parte:

      E drept ca nici piata nu mai e ce era acum 6 luni sau un an.

      Ma bucur sa vad ca sunt oameni, ca tine, care iau in serios pregatirea, sau care iau mai in serios pregatirea decat branding-ul. Am intalnit oameni care se intituleaza „experti” sau „profesionisti” in energie eoliana si nu inteleg nici ce e aceea energie, daramite sa mai si explice unui investitor. Asa cum nu stiu nici cat inteleg finante, daramite sa explice unui neofit. Si asa mai departe. Ai prins ideea, banuiesc. Asadar, investitia in cunoastere si auto-cunoastere always pays, zic eu, chiar daca nu intotdeauna imediat.

      Mi-ar fi placut sa iti pot face eu insumi o oferta, insa in momentul asta nu stiu daca sunt in masura. By the way, ce cursuri ai facut in Danemarca? WASP, WindPro sau ceva in sensul asta? Ca poate voi fi in masura sa iti fac o propunere.

      Vom avea parcuri mai intai in constructie, dupa aceea in functiune si va fi nevoie de oameni pregatiti. Windtechnics, leaderul mondial in mentenanta, intra masiv pe piata de mentenanta si la noi, desi inca nu e nimic de intretinut sau depanat. Isi recruteaza inca de acum o echipe de ingineri. Ti-as putea da contactul celui care se ocupa daca o sa pui adresa cea buna de email in campul respectiv 😉

        WAsP. windpro-ul mi l-am luat de curand cu licenta de student, o sa-mi fac o lucrare pt mater in el. ma gandeam sa fac un curs, pe banii mei, ca oricum o sa am o deplasare pe langa paris in toamna pt pasiuni de rock climber.. dar nu stiu in ce masura imi va folosi si daca merita sa imprumut bani pt asta. nus expert in domeniul asta, dar daca fac asta as vrea s-o fac bine, iar la noi e cam bataie de joc. asta ma deprima.
