Renewables create jobs

Eleven million … and counting!

One of many benefits of the energy transition is its job potential. Solar, Wind, bioenergy and other renewable energy facilities create jobs along the whole value chain, starting from equipment production (e.g. solar cells, wind turbines) to distribution, installation and – finally –  operation and maintenance.

In order to foster the energy transition jobs in the renewable energy sector are created worldwide. The number of employment in renewables amounts 11 million as of 2018 – according to the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).

Some countries take the lead in production jobs, other countries / markets create a lot of jobs in distribution and installation and last but not least there are jobs created in the after sales segment when mainaining renewable power plants.
