The socio-economic impact of renewable energy projects in southern Mediterranean countries: Methodology (task 5-INTERSUDMED project)Funded under: FP4-NNE-JOULE C
The European Union is aiming at promoting the adequate initiatives in order to support the implementation of renewable energy technologies within the Mediterranean basin. In connection with this the IPTS, together with other partners, has undertaken a JOULE project, named INTERSUDMED. In this JOULE project, the IPTS is carrying out the ex-ante socio-economic evaluation of the renewable energy plants, paying special attention to the quantification of the socio-economic benefits. The main goal of this document is to discuss the methodologies to evaluate those socio-economic impacts as a previous analysis before applying them to the INTERSUDMED plants. Both quantitative and qualitative methods are taken into account, although the primary interest is to quantify as much as possible the socio-economic impacts.
