Analysis and modelling carried out by Transition Economics for the TUC’s Voice and Place report provides a regional analysis of clean infrastructure investment options, and the resulting potential for direct job creation.
This analysis demonstrates the regional distribution (at NUTS1 level) of 506,000 English and Welsh potential direct jobs, including in rail upgrades, EV charging, cycles lanes and pedestrianisation, home energy efficiency retrofits, social housing construction, and reforestation.
It also provides job creation estimates for priority industrial policy proposals for a just climate transition in England and Wales identified in the TUC’s Voice & Place report, including battery gigafactories, manufacturing for offshore wind, steel and district heating.
