The EIM-ES is a transparent, Excel-based tool that estimates the domestic employment impacts of investments in the electricity supply sector within a country to aid policy decision makers. The model covers all relevant electricity generation technologies – both low carbon and fossil fuel-based plants – in order to provide an assessment of employment creation under different future pathways for the development of the electricity sector. It also provides information on wider economic indicators such as investment requirements, economic value added and trade.
The tool has been used to compare the magnitude of employment and other economic impacts under a range of scenarios in Argentina and South Africa with analysis ongoing in a number of additional countries (Kenya, Indonesia, Thailand, Mongolia).
The model was developed under the Ambition to Action project.
If you would like to know more about the tool, please contact Harry Fearnehough or Markus Hagemann. This tool is part of the COMPASS-toolbox.
