By 2030, wind energy will employ 479,000 people in Europe; 294,000 will be in offshore wind.

By 2030, wind energy will employ 479,000 people in Europe; 294,000 will be in offshore wind.

75% of direct employment in Germany, Denmark and Spain The three wind energy ‘pioneers’ – Denmark, Germany and Spain – were the first countries to realise the vast potential of the winds sweeping across their lands and to begin installing signifi cant amounts of wind energy capacity. Although other EU Member States are now catching up, three-quarters of the jobs in the sector are still to be found in the three pioneer countries, and certain regions that are especially advanced in wind energy installation have an even higher than average concentration of jobs. Entire local communities have been revitalised as a consequence of wind turbine manufacturing and related activities. There are many examples of this from the three pioneering countries. Cities such as Nakskov and Esbjerg in Denmark; the region of Schleswig-Holstein in Germany and the region of Navarre in Spain are al...
