This is obviously very disappointing news but not a surprise. It is very interesting to see the real numbers affected here though. With a third of companies surveyed saying they will have to make further cuts to staff in the coming year this number is set to grow. The majority of companies are trying to diversify into other technologies such as energy storage but it is difficult to suddenly change direction without having to lose jobs. Let's hope companies can diversify as quickly as possible so we can retain the skilled knowledge within the industry.
