CEEW Report on Power Job Growths with Green Energy

A new report has revealed that India’s renewable energy workforce has grown five-fold in the past five years. In 2019, nearly 100,000 workers are employed in the solar and wind industry in the country, up from 19,800 workers in 2014. Of these, 12,400 new workers were employed in FY19 and 30,000 new workers were employed in FY18 by utility-scale solar, rooftop solar, and wind energy projects.

The findings were released in a new report ‘Powering Jobs Growth with Green Energy’ by the Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW), in collaboration with the Natural Resources Defence Council (NRDC), and the Skill Council for Green Jobs (SCGJ).
