This study focuses on the turnover and workforce of Dutch renewable energy companies, in particular for wind energy, photovoltaic electricity (PV), solar thermal energy, biofuels, solid biomass, biogas and municipal solid waste, small hydro and related technologies, and geothermal energy. As data of renewable energy companies is still scarce and incomplete, the figures presented in this study are generally estimates with some uncertainty (±20%). Still, the turnover of companies in this sector is tentatively estimated at € 3.32 billion and the direct employment at approximately 7,450 people in 2010. The data presented is inevitably incomplete and reflects the current views on this subject.
