dc.description.abstract Greenpeace International and the European Renewable Energy Council published a global energy scenario, Energy [R]evolution, that sets out a vision for low-carbon global energy supply and compares it to the energy projection put forward by the International Energy Agency (IEA 2007). This report presents an analysis of the potential job creation associated with the two scenarios to 2030. Only direct employment associated with electricity production is calculated, including jobs in fuel production, manufacturing, construction, and operations and maintenance. Results are presented for the regions used in both the IEA and Greenpeace projections, namely OECD North America, OECD Europe, OECD Pacific, Africa, Latin America, Middle East, Developing Asia, the Transition Economies, India, and China. Additional detail is given for the G8 countries and the European Union. There have been many reports in recent years attempting to analyse local, national, or regional job effects of energy scenarios and energy policy. This is the first report that attempts to systematically analyse global job impacts of a low-carbon energy future. en
