Renewable energy

Analysis for the Committee on Climate Change estimated that the low carbon and renewable energy sector has the potential to grow 11% per year between 2015 and 2030 – four times faster than the rest of the economy. Around 185,000 people (full-time equivalents) currently work in the sector with many more employed through supply chains; this figure could rise to 694 000 direct jobs by 2030 according to research commissioned by the LGA.
