Comparative analysis: TPPs vs RES and EE in terms of available jobs in Macedonia
Sonja Risteska and Ana Stojilovska in the following period will work on a study commissioned by Analytica’s partner Eko-svest, which will deal with the issue of jobs in the energy sector and is it better to work in thermal power plants or in the renwables sector? The main research question will be whether there is such employment potential in new/replacement lignite power plants and new possible lignite mines in Macedonia as the main proponents of this idea say or no? As well as the possibilities that energy efficiency and renewable energy sectors offer in terms of employment potential, while not depleting already scarce national resources and helping in achieving EU 2030 and 2050 targets. This has been an experience in some EU countries, but it should be tested whether it is true also of Macedonia.
