Employment in renewable energy worldwide was estimated at 11.5 million in 2019, up from 11 million in 2018. Women hold 32% of these jobs.
Most jobs have been created in a small number of countries, but employment benefits are showing up more widely, especially through the deployment of solar photovoltaic (PV) technologies. Asia accounted for 63% of total jobs in renewables globally.
The solar PV industry retains the top spot, with 33% of the total renewable energy workforce. In 2019, 87% of global PV employment was concentrated in the ten countries that lead in worldwide deployment and in the production of equipment.
