When people talk about Sustainable Energy Development there are typically three major technological changes: energy savings on the demand side and , efficiency improvements in the energy production and , and replacement of fossil fuels by various sources of renewable energy. Consequently, large-scale renewable energy implementation plans must include strategies for integrating renewable sources in coherent energy systems influenced by energy savings and efficiency measures. This development to renewable energy leads to new job possibilities round the world in this sector.
For example the European Union states, that the industry sector of renewable energies could generate 5 Million jobs across Europe till 2020. Furthermore another forecast says that for every job in renewable energies there are six more jobs in the direct supply chain. Also a global change to renewable energies would be a big chance to decrease the effects on the environment because of CO2 pollution.
On the other hand a change to renewable energies also leeds to a decreasing amountof jobs in the mining and oil&gas production sector. All in all you can say that a change to renewable energies has a lot of positive effects on the environment and the global labour market.
