  • Green jobs boom: meet the frontline of the new solar economy

    While the price of oil is plummeting, taking with it a significant number of jobs, the renewable energy job market is booming. It is estimated that it will grow to 24m jobs worldwide by 2030 up from 9.2m reported in 2014 according to analysis by IRENA which predicts that doubling the proportion of renewables in the global energy mix would increase GDP by up to $1.3tn across the world.

  • How to Finance a Trillion-Dollar Climate Change Opportunity

    According to a report released last by IRENA, merely doubling the amount of clean energy by 2030 from 2010 levels an increase well short of the increase modeled by BNEF for 2040 lifts global GDP by $1.3 trillion. And improvements in human welfare would go well beyond gains in GDP, thanks to the range of social and health benefits of clean energy. That includes millions of additional jobs.
