Analysis of Value Chains and Socio-Economic Impacts

Renewable energies are not only a climate and environmentally friendly solution for energy supply, they are also a job engine and can help build domestic value chains and industries. To describe and quantify these effects, we have been building socio-economic models for several years as part of ongoing policy advisory projects. The main use cases are:

Ex-ante modelling

Changing framework conditions can create markets for new technologies or open up new customer segments. We analyze the future effects in terms of market size and job effects using quantifying and qualitative calculation models.

Ex-post modelling

Besides the analysis of future developments, eclareon considers and analyzes the impact of individual (large-scale) projects on national or regional labor markets. The ex-post analysis of job effects achieved by individual projects plays a central role especially in international development cooperation.

Interpretation of employment effects

In addition to the quantitative analysis of predicted or real employment effects of sustainable energy projects or markets, eclareon investigates the qualitative distribution of these effects along technology-specific value chains, such as the impact of the expansion of national production capacities.
