Energy Live News – Energy Made Easy – Thumbs up for giant UK offshore wind farm

Energy Live News – Energy Made Easy – Thumbs up for giant UK offshore wind farm | Regenerative Organizations | Scoop.it

A giant offshore wind project that will generate enough electricity to power more than 800,000 homes has been granted development consent.  The Government gave the thumbs up for Hornsea Project One, which will be made of three wind farms.

The 1.2GW project – located 64 miles off the Yorkshire coast – is expected to create up to 2,500 local jobs and bring in “millions of pounds” of investment to the UK economy.  It was one of eight renewable energy projects awarded an early Contract for Difference (CfD) in April this year.

 

Energy Secretary Ed Davey said: “Making the most of Britain’s home grown energy is crucial to creating job and business opportunities in the UK, getting the best deal for consumers and reducing our reliance on foreign imports.  “Wind power is vital to this plan, with £14.5 billion invested since 2010 into an industry which supports 35,400 jobs.”

The Quest For Green Jobs - Global Supply Chains And Climate Change

The Quest For Green Jobs - Global Supply Chains And Climate Change | Regenerative Organizations | Scoop.it

June 27, 2013 Yale Global
THE QUEST FOR GREEN JOBS:

Global supply chains in solar panels cut costs, add jobs and limit pollution. Politicians focus on only manufacture, neglecting green jobs in installation and maintenance. In a world of global supply chains, an average country imports roughtly 40 percent of its very own exports.

The goal of sustainability is a clean environment for some, good jobs for others. Confusion is particularly acute in the area of renewable energy as countries accuse one another about unfair competition in solar panels, explains Doaa Abdel Motaal, deputy chief of staff for the World Trade Organization. “Much of the competition over green jobs ignores the fact that, in today's world, production chains have gone global,” she writes.  Over-emphasis on manufacturing jobs neglects the jobs associated with design, finance, installation or maintenance. Attempts to monopolize green jobs erode the efficiency offered by global value chains; nations arguing over manufacturing raises costs and reduces availability of renewable-energy systems. (Some) Protectionist policies inevitably threaten trade cooperation, jobs and the environment. – YaleGlobal... http://yaleglobal.yale.edu/content/quest-green-jobs

ECO-SPIRITUALITY: TOWARDS A VALUES-BASED ECONOMIC STRUCTURE

Corporate visions of sustainability focus on material prosperity – but leaders must respect the soul as well as the soil, writes Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee...

As our world stumbles to the brink of ecological collapse, the "tipping point" of irreversible climate change, sustainability has become a vital issue. But in order to consider the question of sustainability, it is important to begin with the question: who or what is being sustained?

Does sustainability refer to sustained economic growth, and an environment that is able to maintain the status quo with our energy-intensive, consumer driven needs? Or does sustainability refer to the whole ecosystem, an interconnected web of life with its vast and rich diversity of species? What is the relationship between sustainability and the economy?

HR Magazine - Employers urged to upskill employees for sustainability

HR Magazine - Employers urged to upskill employees for sustainability | Regenerative Organizations | Scoop.it

Business should be upskilling current employees to deal with "urgent" sustainability challenges, according to Institute of Environmental Management & Assessment (IEMA) executive director of policy Martin Baxter.

"The challenge is so big because the CEOs of 2025 are already in work today. Therefore it's about upskilling existing employees as well as embedding sustainable skills in education for young people," he said.

"You need both because we can't afford to wait for the education system to address this issue and bring it into the economy – the challenge is too urgent for that."
