DBL Investors has published this policy brief highlighting the economic benefits of the clean energy sector and the employment boom that is taking place within the industry.
Currently, some of the leading clean energy companies are outperforming prominent technology companies in terms of job growth.
Clean energy sectors such as solar installation are proving to be a more diverse and welcoming industry to minorities than traditional energy industries, employing over 16 thousand more Latinos and 4 thousand more African-Americans.
