Secure and reliable electricity access with renewable energy mini-grids in rural India

Ener­gy access is essen­tial for eco­nom­ic and human devel­op­ment and is an impor­tant dri­ver for the progress of India. Access to mod­ern forms of ener­gy becomes even more impor­tant for the socio-eco­nom­ic devel­op­ment of rur­al areas. To achieve “full elec­tri­fi­ca­tion” suc­ces­sive Indi­an gov­ern­ments have focussed on pro­vid­ing access by extend­ing the cen­tralised grid. Although a […]

Factsheet: Soziale und wirtschaftliche Chancen der Energiewende [German]

Ohne die Energiewende kön­nen Deutsch­lands Kli­maziele nicht erre­icht wer­den. Die Rich­tung stimmt bere­its, aber es geht nicht schnell genug voran. Dabei gibt es neben dem Kli­maschutz noch viele weit­ere gute Argu­mente für Erneuer­bare Energien – zum Beispiel saubere Luft, zukun­fts­fähige Arbeit­splätze und eine faire Regiona­len­twick­lung. Das Fact­sheet gibt einen Überblick über die Co-Ben­e­­­fits eines ambitionierten […]

Economic prosperity for marginalised communities through renewable energy in South Africa

South Africa’s renew­able ener­gy (RE) pro­cure­ment pol­i­cy is glob­al­ly unique in its empha­sis on pro­vid­ing ben­e­fits for com­mu­ni­ties in the vicin­i­ty of projects par­tic­i­pat­ing in the RE Inde­pen­dent Pow­er Pro­duc­er Pro­cure­ment Pro­gramme (REIPPPP). RE projects are pri­mar­i­ly locat­ed in rur­al com­mu­ni­ties, fre­quent­ly cat­e­gorised as “mar­gin­alised com­mu­ni­ties”. The REIPPPP has cre­at­ed a legal frame­work to incentivise […]

Future skills and job creation through renewable energy in South Africa

This study analy­ses the employ­ment impacts of dif­fer­ent plans for expand­ing elec­tric­i­ty gen­er­a­tion in South Africa’s pow­er sec­tor. It presents the result­ing employ­ment effects with­in the elec­tric­i­ty sec­tor, pri­mar­i­ly focus­ing on coal and renew­able ener­gy sources. It also pro­vides an ini­tial assess­ment of the skill attain­ment lev­els required for South Africa’s ener­gy tran­si­tion, and the […]
