More than 50,000 new jobs through photovoltaics and storage technology

Bonn/Berlin/Pforzheim (renewablepress) - In order to avoid a shortfall in electricity generation as a result of the nuclear and coal phaseout, photovoltaic and storage capacities must be expanded. By the year 2030, this would enable the creation of more than 50,000 new jobs in Germany. This is one of the findings of a current study by EuPD Research.

According to the study, the number of jobs in the domestic photovoltaic and storage industries could increase from today’s level of 26,400 to 78,000 by the year 2030. Industry revenue would grow from five to 12.5 billion euros in the coming decade. Job growth would take place for the most part in the fields of planning, installation, operations and maintenance of PV systems.

The German Solar Association (BSW-Solar) calls upon the German government to now move quickly to eliminate existing barriers to investment, and to correct the expansion targets for solar technology that are defined in its climate protection program. The Federal Government must finally act on the promise it has repeatedly made in recent weeks and scrap the 52-gigawatt cap in the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG).

The study was developed in cooperation between BSW-Solar, EuPD Research and The smarter E Europe. The project is supported by BayWa r.e., E3/DC, Fronius, Goldbeck Solar, IBC Solar, Panasonic, SHARP, SIEMENS, sonnen, SUNTECH, TESVOLT and VARTA.
