Green Jobs? Prepare for this New Challenge #2

I put together this series of 12 posts during the COVID 19 pandemic.
In different ways each post give you insights into where and what to look for when considering how you can join the GREEN JOB market.
It is possible to find GREEN JOBs without having to change your career or learn new skills.
Most companies are turning GREEN in some form. BUT depending upon the company, your present career may be important to them. It often depends on what type of companies you search for and how they are turning GREEN.
Maybe you will find something that sparks, stimulates, awakens, triggers your interest to learn a new skill………….who knows!

Portugal Preparing Several Billion-dollar Clean Energy Projects for Post-Coronavirus Future

8 May, 2020 – Spared from the ravages of COVID-19 suffered by her neighbor Spain, Portugal is aiming to leap, rather than tip-toe, out of their lockdown initiatives by launching a series of clean energy projects that could generate 5.5 billion euro in European energy investment.

The new solar-powered hydrogen plant near the port of Sines is a modern “green” hydro-electric project that generates electricity through a process called electrolysis, and it could contribute 1 gigawatt of power by 2023 if investment arrives.

“The economy cannot grow along the lines of the past and our post-coronavirus vision is to create wealth from projects that reduce carbon emissions and promote energy transition and sustainable mobility,” Portugal’s Minister of Environment and Energy Transition, Joao Matos Fernandes, told Reuters.

UK ‘must prioritise green economic recovery’

8 April, 2020 Boris Johnson needs to prioritise a green UK economic recovery following the coronavirus crisis, says bosses from leading firms.
They called for polluting industries “without a proper climate plan” to be excluded from government help.
As the UK eases restrictions and tries to repair damage to the economy from the crisis, the chief executives of more than 60 British organisations called on the government to:
>> Invest in infrastructure, technology and skills to create jobs that help sustainability
>> Exclude companies in “polluting industries” that do not have a proper climate plan
>> Restore ecosystems on land and in our oceans by incentivising walking and cycling
>> Support sustainable food, farming and fishing
>> Swiftly pass environmental laws and bring in targets in law to restore ecosystems
>> Bring global leaders together to plan for a sustainable economic recovery
