Our guest this week will be BEAM and Mitchell Community Energy member John Thompson, with this week's show host Marie Gerrard.


We will be discussing the many job opportunities opening up in Australia in the renewable

energy sector. Australia has extensive opportunities to develop our workforce in areas like

mining silicon and rare earths used in batteries.


Instead of simply digging up and exporting, we have a huge opportunity to value add these minerals. We could be building more of our own wind towers and manufacturing and exporting solar panels. With a bit of imagination and investment there are potentially many jobs for those exiting coal mining and like industries.
