Supplementary notes

*Includes 122,481 jobs in technologies not separately broken down in the table, such as solar heating and cooling, geothermal heat, heat pumps and others. Solar heating and cooling is also included (but not reported separately) in the Solar Foundation’s estimate on all solar technologies, so there is effectively a small amount of double counting.
**Figures include an estimate of 200,000 indirect jobs in equipment manufacturing.
***Figures include an estimate of 27,000 jobs in waste to energy and some 240,000 jobs in heat pumps. (of which 118,000 jobs are in China, 116,000 in the EU, and 6,500 jobs in the U.S.)
