EAC: Green Jobs Inquiry

15 January 2021

A significant number of jobs will be required to help meet the pathway to net zero emissions by sector, including the solar sector. For example, National Grid estimates that reaching net zero will require the creation of 400,000 jobs by 2050. The Solar Energy UK’s ambition is to enable the deployment of 40GW of solar power in the UK by 2030 as part of this, a target consistent with the recommendations of the Committee on Climate Change, which recommends the deployment of 54GW of solar by 2035 and the National Infrastructure Commission (NIC), which has recommended 38GW by 2030.
