CLEAN ENERGY JOBS GROWING

22 November 2019, Friday

The clean-energy (green energy) industry in USA has
grown at 3.6% in 2018, ;   3,26 million
people in USA now work in clean energy (National nonpartisan business group, E2
– Environmental Entrepreneurs). The increase in jobs was mainly in the clean
energy storage and clean vehicles. The main reasons are: –

  • Increase in demand for electric vehicles by
    consumers
  • state expansions of charging infrastructure
  • falling battery prices and
  • increased solar-storage installations.

Solar alone employs more than twice the number of
coal workers; there are more Americans working in clean energy than there are
school teachers.
