Renewables Boosts Jobs and Global GDP up to $1.3 Trillion

Dear GENI Friend,

http://www.uaeinteract.com/news/article_pics/uae-73453.jpgDramatically scaling up renewables in the global energy mix by 2030 would increase GDP, social welfare and employment worldwide-- IRENA Renewable Energy Benefits: Measuring the Economics

http://www.irena.org/images/REJobs2015_Infographic_1.jpgThere are three great reasons to build renewable energy in every nation:

  1. Renewable energy development is a jobs program. Since renewable energies; like wind, solar, geothermal, biomass and hydro can be found in almost every nation, this is a career opportunity for young engineers who want to build a more sustainable world.

  2. Building renewables within your nation keeps your currency circulating within your nation.

  3. Renewables produce no CO2, and are one essential solution for every nation following the Paris Climate Agreement by 197 nations.

2015 investment in renewables attracted a record $329 billion (Bloomberg Energy Finance).  Jobs in wind and solar energy are projected to grow 12-15x by 2030.

Universities are offering sustainability degrees, and GENI has benefitted from many of these interns who want to gain addition experience.

GENI is training these students to be the sustainable leaders of the future.  They will be filling some of the most important jobs to provide clean energy for the future and mitigate the effects of climate change. This is a growth industry today and millions of jobs are being created.  We have internships available for committed students and volunteers. Send your resume to: mary@geni.org

In Partnership for the Planet,
