1.1M renewable energy jobs exist in the wind industry
Published: 04 Jul 2016
Employment in the wind industry has continued to grow with IRENA claiming there are over 1.1M jobs now existing within the wind industry.
The recent figures are from IRENA (International Renewable Energy Agency) and highlight the continued growth of the wind sector and overall increase in renewable energy jobs worldwide.
The surge of jobs within the wind industry is largely accountable to the increased installation rates within the USA, Germany and China. Combined with improved efficiency, declining costs and pressure on governments to reduce carbon emissions the industry is in good shape and looking good for future years.
