Clean Energy Exports Report

07 Oct 2021

A global shift towards renewable power and clean energy goods and services is already well underway, and immediate early action can make Australia a leader and position workers and businesses for the future.

This is Australia’s opportunity to create 395,000 clean export jobs and generate $89 billion in new trade by 2040 through investment in clean energy exports.

In this new analysis, ACF, WWF-Australia, ACTU and BCA  identify 5 specific actions for government to put Australia at the front of the pack:

  • Coordinated investment in 7 clean export precincts 
  • $10 billion co-investment in new industries 
  • $5 billion fund for workers and regions to diversify
  • A new program to support low-carbon materials in major infrastructure projects 
  • An interim target of 6 GW of hydrogen and 3 green metals plants by 2027

See below for the full and summary report.
