1 June 2022


2.1 IEA’s Net-Zero Emissions by 2050 scenario The IEA examines a Net-Zero Emissions (NZE) by 2050 Scenario, which outlines how energy demand and supply will have to change to achieve global net-zero emissions by 2050.11 The IEA outlines milestones on the path to net-zero across sectors of the economy and examines the costs of net-zero and potential ramifications for the economy and employment.12 T. [...] For those laid off in the 1995-2000 and 2010-2015 years, about 20% and 28%, respectively, were re-employed in the mining and oil and gas extraction sector.113 One prominent occupational group in mining, for example, is “underground production and development miners.” Common titles in this group include “miner,” “chute blaster,” and “driller” and common skillsets and duties include the set up and o. [...] Oil and gas skills and competencies related to oil and gas processing and refining have potential to be transferrable to the processing of hydrogen into ammonia and synthetic fuels.125 Finally, the construction of steam-methane reforming facilities with CCUS for the production of blue hydrogen, the construction of CO2 pipelines and the conversion of orphaned wells and oilfields to the disposal of. [...] The CICC has estimated that electric heating systems will heat between 52% and 100% of households as of 2050.141 In the IEA’s NZE, over 85% of buildings are zero-carbon as of 2050, which involves the introduction of mandatory zero-carbon- ready building energy codes as of 2030 and the retrofitting of the majority of the existing building stock as of 2050.142 The Pembina Institute has put forward a. [...] While this report’s exploration of skills in buildings focuses on the construction sector, a number of the skills mentioned in the study related to prefabrication.154 The report found that skills and capacity required include: Off-site construction and prefabrication, including the setup of a prefabrication shop; logistics for transporting, hoisting and construction sequencing and the streamlining.
