  • Renewable Energy Industry Supports More than 9 million Jobs in 2014: IRENA Report

    Renewable energy jobs reached 7.7 million in 2014, excluding large hydropower, a new report from IRENA states. In particular, the paper estimates large hydropower supported 1.5 million direct jobs – almost half of them in China, largely in construction and installation – bringing the total renewable jobs in the world to more than 9 million last year.

  • Renewable Energy Now Employs 7.7 Million People Worldwide

    Renewable energy investment and deployment is paying off, and in spades, when it comes to addressing a basic issue plaguing developed and developing countries alike: an inability to generate jobs that pay a good living wage. Around the world, renewable energy job creation continues to far outpace that for economies overall. Some 7.7 million people are now employed across the global renewable energy value chain, according to IRENA.
