Renewable Energy and Jobs: Annual Review 2022

This new report by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) in collaboration with the International Labour Organization (ILO) provides the latest estimates of renewable energy employment globally.

The report first surveys the global renewable energy employment landscape as of 2021. It then discusses employment results for selected countries with respect to deployment trends, policy contexts and pandemic impacts, with an eye to job quality as well as job numbers. It explores job quality and related issues in the upstream and downstream segments of the renewable energy supply chain. Throughout the report, particular attention is given to the regional distribution of employment within countries, to the gender dimension, and to trade.
