The Kimberley Clean Energy Roadmap, if implemented, will potentially result in numerous long-term jobs within WA, made up as follows:

  • 88 long-term jobs in Construction and Installation
  • 26 long-term jobs in Manufacturing across WA
  • 70 ongoing Operations and Maintenance jobs
  • 162 long-term jobs in the Kimberley
  • 184 long-term jobs across WA

Thus, if this clean energy roadmap for the Kimberley is adopted by the WA Government, a new a sustainable workforce of ongoing local jobs could be created.

Additionally, the Kimberley Clean Energy Roadmap provides significant opportunities for employment and benefit sharing/investment arrangements for Native Title holders and/or communities. Long term, 160+ jobs in manufacturing, construction, installation, operations and maintenance will be available in the Kimberley.

The major providers of electricity supply services in the Kimberley (Horizon Power, Department of Communities, Kimberley Remote Service Providers and potentially EMC Kimberley) have committed to training and employing Indigenous workers as part of their activities.
