Play • 29 min

As COVID-19 restrictions start to ease in many parts of the world, economic recovery plans are taking shape to stimulate jobs and growth. A recent Clean Energy Council report demonstrated how renewable energy could create an estimated 50,000 new jobs and inject approximately AUD 50 billion worth of investment in Australia, particularly in regional areas where projects would be located.
