Volume 463: debated on Tuesday 17 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform what estimate his Department has made of levels of employment in the UK renewable energy sector in each of the last five years. (148428)

The Department does not make annual estimates as to the number of people employed within the renewable energy sector.

The latest year for which we have an estimate is 2004, which indicated that the renewable energy sector, in that year, generated around 8,000 UK jobs.
