SMARTer jobs

Renewable energy infrastructure creates more jobs than coal and nuclear, particularly when manufacturing is local. Whereas coal-fired and nuclear power plants are large and centrally located, renewable energy power plants can be distributed all over the country, thereby providing a more widespread allocation of jobs. The renewable energy industry is therefore likely to have broader impacts on migration and job-seeker patterns, with the creation of jobs in marginalised and diverse geographic regions, and contribution to rural economies and livelihoods. Development of South Africa’s wind and solar potential would create abundant and sustainable new jobs, replacing outmoded fossil fuel – based jobs. Mining jobs would transition into the Renewable Energy sector. Further jobs would be created through Energy Efficiency.
