TIME: 10am – 11am AEDT
RACE for 2030 Cooperative Research Centre is preparing to release the first comprehensive modelling of the workforce needed to deliver the Australian Energy Market Operator’s (AEMO) 2022 Integrated System Plan (ISP), the industry-leading 30-year roadmap of investments required in the National Electricity Market. The Electricity Sector Workforce Projections consist of a 50-year view, spread across a summarised Main Report and a report for each of the five respective NEM states.
The 2022 ISP informs Australia’s energy transformation based on optimal development of essential transmission investments to efficiently enable low-cost, firmed renewable energy to replace exiting coal generation. However, the electricity sector transition will not progress without a sufficiently large and adequately skilled workforce to support it.

You are invited to attend an online event with the research team, including lead author Jay Rutovitz, to find out more about this research and its relevance to the energy industry.
