The Department of Energy and Climate Change does not have an overall estimate of jobs in the low carbon and environmental goods and services sector in each year from 2015 to 2030.

However, the Department recently published a comprehensive assessment of investment and employment in UK energy sectors1, including an estimate that Electricity Market Reform will help support up to 250,000 jobs in low carbon electricity generation by 2020.
