- There are 872,000 power sector jobs in the [R]evolution scenario in OECD Europe in 2010, and 749,000 in the Reference scenario.
- In 2020, job numbers reach 1.2 million in the [R]evolution scenario and 854,000 in the Reference scenario.
- Job numbers reach nearly 1.3 million in 2030 in the [R]evolution scenario, compared to 940,000 in the Reference scenario.
There are more power sector jobs in OECD Europe in the[R]evolution scenario at every stage. In 2010, the [R]evolution has about 140,000 additional jobs compared to the Reference scenario.By 2020, the [R]evolution scenario has 350,000 additional jobs.The gap between the two scenarios remains similar in 2030.
Figure 3.18 shows the change in job numbers under both scenarios for each technology between 2010 and 2020, and 2010 and 2030. New jobs in the [R]evolution scenario are dominated by wind,and there are significant losses in the coal sector in both scenarios.
It is assumed that by 2020 all manufacturing occurs within Europe, and that OECD Europe is a major exporter to other regions. In the [R]evolution scenario export jobs reach 5%of the total energy supply jobs in 2020, and 7% by 2020.In the Reference scenario export jobs fall to 1% by 2020.
