Reviving national economies & health systems following the COVID-19 pandemic

Economies around the world have been severely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Substantial political efforts will be needed to stabilize employment markets and relieve pressure on health systems. Renewable energy generation can provide important stimuli for efforts to achieve these goals. This factsheet by the COBENEFITS project highlights the potentials of renewables in Turkey, South Africa, Vietnam, India and Mexico. The figures presented here are drawn from own studies conducted in 2019 and 2020 and reveal the co-benefits that policymakers could achieve for their countries through to 2030 by taking the necessary decisions to “build back better”.
