Climate change thinktank Beyond Zero Emissions has called for 90 gigawatts (GW) of renewable energy capacity and 20GW of batteries to be built over the next five years. It estimates this would create 124,000 construction jobs and 22,000 ongoing jobs. Beyond Zero Emissions also states there should be local content requirements for wind turbines, batteries and transmission components, saying this could create 15,000 manufacturing jobs, and that a wind energy manufacturing industry could be easily created by converting old factories.
