The Federal Government has introduced the Australian Energy Employment Report (AEER), the country’s first national energy workforce survey. The survey’s goal is to provide a comprehensive understanding of the energy sector jobs, workers, and skills and support the industr’s workforce. Launched on January 30 2023 the survey aims to:


  • Give federal, state and local governments insights to aid in the development of policies for jobs, skills development, and training opportunities in the energy sector.
  • Support government initiatives, such as ensuring a transition pathway for fossil fuel workers and promoting workforce diversity.
  • Enable energy sector businesses to improve workforce planning, support business opportunities, and direct investment.


The AEER will fill the gap in Australia’s energy sector data and provide a national survey of businesses and organisations in the energy sector. Learnings from the survey will help develop strategies for the energy sector.
