Renewable energy sector, as sun and wind, employs more and more people and this is just the start.


According to a report by Allen & York, the 9.4 million includes 2.8 million in solar PV, 1.6 million in liquid biofuels and 1 million in wind, reflecting a “5% increase in 2015 and confirms the strength of this relatively new industry.”

When it comes to fossil fuels versus renewables, there’s no contest. Clean energy is our fastest path to a booming, prosperous economy for all of us. The next time you’re confronted with the White House’s alternative facts on coal, oil and job creation, arm yourselves with this info instead.

The report states that China, Brazil, the United States, India, Japan and Germany currently have the most renewable energy jobs.  Europe still has a strong renewables market, it says, despite the withdrawal of subsidies in the UK for new wind and solar developments.  Germany, Spain, the UK, France and Italy “lead the field in installed wind capacity across Europe”, and the solar marketplace has “grown by 15% of installed capacity in 2015”, prompting  SolarEurope to describe Europe as the most “solarized continent”.

China risks to destroy massively the job industry in Europe


From 2017,More than three million jobs in the European Union and around 50 anti-dumping legal cases are at risk if the bloc grants new trade rights to China, a new study says, prompting a major backlash from both industry and trade unions.

As December of 2016 approaches,a date when China will obtain the status of “market economy” to the World Trade Organization (WTO), concerns are growing about the consequences of such a change on the employment in Europe and the United States. A report published on Friday by the Economic Policy Institute (EPI), a Washington-based institute, states that 3,5 million jobs will probably be destroyed in Europe between 2017 and 2020, which is 1,8 % of the total.

The European Union, along with other World Trade Organization (WTO) members, needs to determine whether to accord China “market economy status” (MES) at the end of 2016.
