This issue brief analyses the direct jobs created from solar and wind in India in the last two financial years. It also provides updated findings and recommendations geared toward India’s goal of 175 GW of installed renewable energy (RE) by 2022. Written in collaboration with the Natural Resources Defence Council (NRDC) and the Skills Council for Green Jobs (SCGJ), this brief builds on two earlier issue briefs on clean energy jobs, Greening India’s Workforce (2017) and Clean Energy Powers Local Job Growth in India (2015).
