A report released today from consultancy EY on behalf of Solar Power Europe is predicting a potential 470 percent growth in job creation in the solar sector in some countries by 2021. Spain, Greece, and Poland are on top of the list for rapid expansion over the coming years. In total, the report estimates 94,000 new solar jobs in Europe in 4 years.

“2021 new installed capacities will be three to 20 times the capacities installed in 2016. This has a direct effect on engineering and installation related jobs,” the report says.
