Do a trade, save the planet

As Australia continues to transition to new energy systems, we are seeing more and more opportunities for electrical workers to be at the cutting edge of technology and to become proficient in some of the most advanced energy systems available.

Projects coming online are transforming entire communities and represent a tangible way to combat climate change. This generation of school leavers must be told, if they want to save the planet, they should do a trade. 

ETU members know how crucial our trade is to helping Australia reach its clean energy targets in 2030 and 2050. And with a current shortfall of 32,000 electricians for the number of electricians needed by 2030, this commitment by the Federal Government shows they are listening to the calls from ETU members asking for more investment and funding for the energy transition.
