IRENA - 11 million people employed in Renewable Energy Worldwide in 2018

According to the International Renewable Energy Agency’s (IRENA) Renewable Energy and Jobs annual review, the global renewable energy sector employed 11 million people in 2018, up from 10.3 million in 2017. 

Continuing the unsurprising revelations from IRENA’s report is the fact that solar PV remains the largest employer of renewable energy jobs with fully one-third of the total renewable energy jobs reported in 2018. Similarly, Asia again remains the leader of solar PV jobs accounting for over 3 million solar PV jobs, nearly nine-tenths of the global total.
