Renewable energy job creation and skill development is one of the Indian government’s foremost objectives. However, credible information on the number of jobs that have been created so far, and those that can be created in future to achieve India’s renewable energy goal of 175 gigawatts (GW) by 2022, has been lacking.

This paper contributes to the economics literature on renewable energy generation by investigating climate-change impacts on renewable energy generation in Africa (with special focus on hydropower generation as it is the main renewable source of power in the continent). The analysis includes 51 African countries over the period 1996-2012.
