3,500 jobs can be opened in energy efficiency sector in 5 to 10 years: the study "National Contributions to Climate Change" developed by MANU's Research Center for Energy and Sustainable Development says that the construction of buildings by the new energy efficiency standards can help create 3,500 new jobs by 2030.
3,500 new jobs can be created in Macedonia's energy efficiency sector over the next five to ten years. In order to tap this potential, the quality of the secondary vocational education needs to be stepped up. This was said at the forum on green jobs and education organized by the Go Green environmental association with support from the EU and the Swiss Embassy.
The forum seeks to raise the issue of the needs of the labor market in the energy efficiency sector, to inspire interest among the young in studying energy efficiency and to encourage the creation of jobs in the building sector.
The study "National Contributions to Climate Change" developed by MANU's Research Center for Energy and Sustainable Development says that the construction of buildings by the new energy efficiency standards can help create 3,500 new jobs by 2030.
"We have been organizing the forum on green jobs and education for four years. It is a result of the need to raise the use of renewable sources of energy and to become more energy efficient in compliance with the EU legislation but also of the need to contribute to the climate change adaptation. By 2020, 2.5 million and 6,000 jobs will be created in the sectors of energy efficiency and renewable sources of energy of the EU and Macedonia respectively," says Antonio Jovanovski, Go Green's chief executive.
