Power for All has released the first annual jobs census measuring employment from decentralized renewables for rural electrification in Africa and Asia, Powering Jobs Census 2019: the Energy Access Workforce.
#PoweringJobs is a global campaign to ensure that the needed skills and jobs in clean, distributed energy are created to achieve universal electricity access for 1 billion people, and to employ the energy workforce of the future, especially women and youth. The campaign will create powerful evidence and stories to elevate and legitimize skills and training, and ensure building the new energy workforce is at the center of international and national development policy.
