Renewable electrification pathways and sustainable industrialisation: Lessons learned and their implications

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


This chapter is structured as follows: the next section reiterates the key research themes addressed in this book in order to situate the findings in wider debates about pathways to sustainable industrialisation. The following section forms the bulk of the chapter. It conveys the findings regarding the relative importance and dynamics of different aspects of renewable electrification for enhancing capability outcomes. It is structured around aspects related to the three key themes of the book, (a) projects design, organisation and linkages, (b) deployment model and choice of technology and (c) policies and political actors at the national and international level. The final section brings out the implications for policy. We summarise key findings arising from the research presented in this book, with the hope that the pointers for policy action can prove useful for more sustainable pathways that combine primary energy benefits and secondary localised economic co-benefits in the context of renewable electrification and the green transformation more broadly.
