Using a PANEL OLS MODEL, this study evidences the dynamic relationship between the production of renewable energy such as hydroelectric, biomass, wind, solar, geothermal, and the unemployment that was considered as the dependent variable in the 11 non- OECD Countries,over the period 1990-2014.The paper identifies conditions in which renewable energy contribute to a reduction of unemployment in non-OECD Countries. In Particular this evidence is clear not for all renewable energy but only for Biomass and Solar Power . The explanation for this result is given by the morphology of the non-OECD Regions, and by high skill transferability in renewable energy sector. This result is very interesting, because shows that in developing countries where unemployment is very high, the government could intervene with policies for the increase of renewable energy for the reduction of unemployment.

Abstract

Using a PANEL OLS MODEL, this study evidences the dynamic relationship between the production of renewable energy such as hydroelectric, biomass, wind, solar, geothermal, and the unemployment that was considered as the dependent variable in the 11 non- OECD Countries,over the period 1990-2014.The paper identifies conditions in which renewable energy contribute to a reduction of unemployment in non-OECD Countries. In Particular this evidence is clear not for all renewable energy but only for Biomass and Solar Power . The explanation for this result is given by the morphology of the non-OECD Regions, and by high skill transferability in renewable energy sector. This result is very interesting, because shows that in developing countries where unemployment is very high, the government could intervene with policies for the increase of renewable energy for the reduction of unemployment.
