Renewables market worth $600 billion by 2015

Renewable energy sources are progressively going from the fringe to the mainstream. Indeed, to the IEA they may provide as much electricity to the grids than coal by 2035. Now, here is a market study that provides further evidence :

” According to the new market research report ‘Global Renewable Energy Market Outlook (2008 – 2015), published by MarketsandMarkets, the global renewable energy market is expected to reach a size of $614.92 billion by 2015.”

This is great but I really would like to know how many green jobs will be created. Guess that with so much money – 460 billion euros – there will be a lot.
