Work package 4: Macroeconomic effects of RE expansion on economic growth and employment

Gross effects by region and RE sector

The effects of RE expansion can be analysed and described for 13 technologies and 16 federal states using the macroeconometric model PANTA RHEI. As part of regular reports commissioned by the BMU, employment related to RE expansion, the operation of RE facilities, the supply of biomass, public research on RE and exports of RE installations is determined for the previous year and the results published each spring. The regionalisation of these results includes a modelling of the input interrelationships between federal states. The results are published each summer.
