Global wind employment grew by 5% during 2015 to reach 1.1 million, according to new figures published by the Global Wind Energy Council.

New figures published by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) this week reveal that the record growth of the wind industry’s installed capacity was reflected by growth in the industry’s employment figures, which increased 5% during 2015, reaching a total of 1.1 million people employed. With the global wind energy industry installing over 63 GW of capacity in 2015, it should come as no surprise that the industry is seeing a matching growth in employment.
