The Socio-economic Benefits of Solar and Wind Energy

Renewable energy technologies have experienced rapid deployment over the past few years, mainly driven by the ambition to improve energy security, enhance energy access and mitigate climate change. Many countries are now exploring ways to stimulate social and economic growth through the development of the renewable energy sector.  Investment in renewable energy can generate new sources of growth, increase income, improve trade balances, contribute to industrial development and create jobs. While such socio-economic benefits are increasingly gaining prominence in the global renewable energy debate, specific analytical work and empirical evidence on this important subject remain relatively limited.
