Clean energy needs 30million new workers

By 2030, clean energy will require highly skilled workers.

That leaves eight years for the industry to build capacity or for experienced workers to pivot. If I put that in context to Sizwell C, the new Suffolk England nuclear plant currently raising capital (read my article from Tuesday, 16 January link below), whose responsibility is it to build workers' capacity, the UK government or EDF (majority owners of the plant)?


A plant can only run with workers, and the government can provide support to expedite needs. This is a classic example of why sustainability has three pillars (economic, social, and environmental).

All are dependent on each other to be successful.

Do you agree or disagree?
