A job hunt is underway to recruit workers for a massive government job hunt to boost the efficiency of energy-intensive electricity and wind projects, the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) has said.
The job hunt for energy-efficient workers has been underway since early January.
While it is yet to be announced whether the jobs will be for Australian workers, AEMO said in a statement that they are “expected to include engineers, plant operators and others in the Australian energy sector”.
The agency said it was also looking to hire about 100 people from around the world who are “highly qualified to work in the energy sector” and that the job would “have an important impact on the Australian economy”.
AEMo said it had already identified about 100 energy-savings projects that would be “very significant for the energy market”.
“These projects will deliver significant economic benefits to Australians and will help reduce Australia’s energy consumption, increase the energy security of our country and ensure the health and wellbeing of our citizens,” the agency said.
“These projects can be expected to be part of the long-term plans for AEMOs major projects including the $300 million National Energy Supply Plan, which will bring together a range of energy infrastructure projects.”
In April, the AEMo launched a national energy search, inviting people to send in their ideas for energy projects to be developed through a “robust, well-designed, transparent and accessible process”.
It also said the search for new energy jobs was a “key part” of the agency’s strategy to drive economic growth.
“Energy will play a critical role in Australia’s economy and will become a vital part of our national identity,” the AAMO said.
”AEMOs job search is a great opportunity for Australians to join the energy industry and help the Australian community and industry continue to thrive.

“These are people who are highly qualified and who have demonstrated experience in the power sector, including those in the design and construction industry.”
The government is considering the hiring of about 100 Australians to help develop projects for the National Energy Savings Plan.
In addition to the search, the government is looking to recruit about 500 people to help the project by “developing and implementing a number of energy efficiency projects and projects that are expected to create jobs”, according to the AEWS website.
However, some of the job seekers who have applied to take part in the job hunt are expected be “more focused on the work themselves rather than the company”, the AOMO said, adding that it would take more than 200 “very skilled” workers to do all the work on the projects.

Under the plan, AIMO says the government will support the energy-saving projects by providing financial support for companies.
Energy companies are required to make savings on energy costs in the form of reduced electricity costs and other costs, which are paid by households and businesses.
According to the government, about $7 billion of the total $300 billion National Energy Program budget would be used to support the “delivery of the energy savings projects”.
But there are concerns the government might not be able to support all the energy projects it aims to deliver.
For example, AAMS chief executive officer Nick McBride said the government had to “work very hard” to support energy projects that were “in the best interest of Australia’s community and economy”.
“There are some very strong arguments about whether or not the energy and environmental benefits of energy projects are worth the economic costs,” Mr McBride told ABC Radio National’s The Agenda.
Mr McBride also said that the government would have to consider whether or if it should “support energy projects” in the absence of “a specific federal subsidy”.
There are about 15 billion people in Australia, according to AAMs own data.
Some of those people have expressed concerns that the energy policy was not strong enough, and there have been calls for a carbon tax.
Last month, the federal government announced a $2.5 billion energy security package that includes a $100 million carbon tax rebate for people earning less than $50,000 a year.
There has been growing public and media interest in the idea of a carbon-based price on energy consumption in Australia.
This has led to a series of discussions about a carbon price, with both the Australian Bureau of Statistics and the Department of Climate Change (the former has said a carbon levy
