The Employ-RES study is the first study to assess the economic effects of supporting renewable energy production in the EU in this detail. The study not only looks at jobs in the RES sector itself, but also takes into account its impact on other sectors of the economy. The study shows that the benefits of renewable energies regarding environmental protection and security of supply can go hand in hand with economic benefits.
