European Study: 2.8 Million Renewable Energy Jobs by 2020

Renewable Energy Magazine reports:

"The main conclusion of a European Commission's study on the impact of renewable energy policy on economic growth and employment in the European Union (Employ-RES) published last week is that reaching 2020 renewable energy targets is expected to lead to around 2.8 million jobs in the renewable energy sector and generate total value added of approximately 1.1% of GDP."
