Career prospects 

Globally, the total renewable energy capacity has quadrupled in the last ten years. In 2015, $286 billion was invested in renewables and, for the first time, more than half of all added power generation came from renewables. However, significant increases in growth are still needed if global renewable energy targets are to be achieved.

Renewable energy is set to expand even further as the UK aims to bring all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050. Renewable energy also has a particularly important role to play in providing crucial services in developing countries to tackle poverty and support sustainable economic growth.
