2 Green Job Families

3 Definition: Green Jobs
Green Jobs involve protecting wildlife or ecosystems, reducing pollution or waste, or reducing energy usage and lowering carbon emissions. The energy jobs are concentrated in energy efficiency, with some growth in renewable energy. They are cleaner, cheaper and smarter than traditional technologies. Green Sectors include: Environment Agriculture and Forestry Environment Protection Recycling and Waste Reduction Energy Energy and Carbon Capture and Storage Energy Trading Energy Efficiency Renewable Energy Generation Infrastructure Green Construction Manufacturing Transportation Support Government and Regulatory Administration Research, Design and Consulting Services

4 Within each of these sectors are 3 subcategories
Increased Demand Occupations: Existing jobs which will be in higher demand For example, the Renewable Energy Sector will need power system operators in wind, solar and geothermal. They will have the same skills as power system operators from traditional energy plants. Enhanced Skills Occupations : Exiting jobs that require new skills For instance, occupations such as electrical engineers, continuous mining machine operators, and mechanical engineers are likely to expand to include new tasks and competencies. New and Emerging Occupations (N&E) : Jobs that did not exist before, but have been created by the new green economy For example, designing, installing or selling solar equipment.
