New figures published by the Office for National Statistics have shed fresh light on solar PV’s contribution to the UK’s green economy.

A statistical bulletin published today provides green economy data for 2015, revealing that total turnover from businesses involved in the low carbon and renewable energy economy in 2015 stood at £43.1 billion.

Approximately 1.3% of total UK turnover outside of the financial sector.


The ONS also estimated that solar was responsible for 6.8% of the 234,000 full time employees working directly in the green economy, equivalent to roughly 16,000 people.
