ABSTRACT
The article reflects on a study on the size of the renewable energy industry, its potential economic impacts and the number of the jobs it will offer, as of July 2007. The study disaggregates the industries by technology and focus on the potential job creation. The section summarizes some of the study findings based on research conducted by the research team. Among of the findings shows estimates of 2006 jobs in the renewable industry and the total jobs created by the industry in the same year. It also shows the job distribution of a typical renewable energy manufacturing company may differ relatively little from that of a company that manufactures other products.
