Lightsource BP, a solar developer part-owned by BP Plc, expects to add 570 employees around the world this year.

Staff numbers will almost double from fewer than 600 at the start of the year. That growth shows new solar parks are still coming online despite the impact of the pandemic, while a global push for clean energy is opening opportunities in more countries, according to Chief Executive Officer and founder Nick Boyle.
