This technical report is the first GGGI study that focuses on the nexus of sustainable energy and green jobs. Based on researched conducted in three GGGI member countries – Mexico, Indonesia, and Rwanda, the study assessed the job creation potential of renewable energy technologies under various power sector pathways based on National Energy Plans and countries’ NDCs. Occupation and skills required by the renewable energy sector for each stage of the value chain were also identified and assessed. The analysis highlights the important role that assessments of employment effects can play during the revision of countries’ NDCs while simultaneously addressing the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) related to affordable and clean energy (7), decent work and economic growth (8) and climate action (13).
