Eleven million people were employed in renewable energy industries worldwide in 2018 according to the latest analysis by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).
This shows almost 7% growth compared to 2017 when 10.3 million people were working in the renewable energy market.
The diversification of the renewable energy supply chain is changing the sector’s geographic footprint. Until now, renewable energy industries have remained relatively concentrated in a handful of major markets, such as China, the United States, and the European Union. Increasingly, however, East and Southeast Asian countries have emerged alongside China as key exporters of solar panels. Countries including Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam were responsible for a greater share of growth in renewables jobs last year, which allowed Asia to maintain a 60% share of renewable energy jobs worldwide.
