  • CEEW and NRDC’s report captures a new dimension in accurately assessing manpower requirements in the solar and wind domain. The report builds on earlier studies on the subject, considering national objectives to meet INDC commitments. It makes the path of Skill Council for Green Jobs more clear and visible in terms of capturing the opportunity of employability in solar and wind domain.
