A renewable energy sector will be the biggest economic lever to drive the next era's progress. The sector is booming with new technology and more research output, and for the first time, the sector is at the forefront of mass adoption.

The countries that can capture this trend and build the necessary infrastructure will be advantageous in the long run and have economic leverage over others.

Here it will be stated how a renewable sector can benefit a thriving economy.

  1. Reducing Climate Change Impacts on the Country

Climate change is one of the major concerns pushing the need and the agenda for renewable energy. A thriving sector within the country can substitute a lot of expensive purchases with low-cost renewable alternatives.

The government can mandate that businesses procure energy from renewable sources within its legislation. It will help in reducing carbon emissions from the environment.  This policy can increase consumption within the country, benefiting the sector and the environment.

  1. Creating Jobs in the Manufacturing Sector

A country can revive its manufacturing sector again by bringing in many companies in the renewable sector. It will open the factory floors and help the government reduce unemployment.

It will create a range of blue-collar and white-collar jobs that can increase the country's consumption. A good consuming country is always a boon for the economy.

  1. Earning From Exports

Creating expertise in this sector will provide the companies with many foreign contracts, bringing a lot of export revenue to the country. A country can reduce its trade deficit if it can export a major requirement like this to the world.

For example, oil as a commodity made oil-rich nations economically affluent and strong. This same phenomenon can happen once a country sets a benchmark for their manufacturing units.

  1. Deep Knowledge of the Technology

One of the major beneficiaries of getting the best at manufacturing a single product is that it gives an unfair advantage to product expertise.

For example, the United States has an unfair advantage in designing and building military equipment. The country comes up with the most advanced defence weapons and has established itself as a superior manufacturer.

Taiwan, a small island state on the South China Sea, dominates chip manufacturing. It has the world’s most technologically advanced fabs for manufacturing electronic chips.

With this expertise comes a country's geopolitical leverage once it holds an important part of the global supply chain.

  1. Achieving Net Zero Goals

All the world's major economies have set their target and goal for achieving Net Zero in their Paris Agreement. It will be a huge political and environmental success if a country can achieve their net zero targets within the mentioned time limit.

The renewable sector will help significantly curb scope 1,2, and 3 emissions and transition towards greener energy.

A country that understands the needs and trends of the market can significantly enjoy a better position than others. The question will be how effectively the government can capitalize on that.
