Analyze potential job and economic development impacts of renewable energy projects around the world



International Jobs & Economic Development Impacts (I-JEDI) Model

The International Jobs and Economic Development Impacts (I-JEDI) model is a freely available economic model that estimates gross economic impacts from wind, solar, biopower, and geothermal energy projects around the world. Click here to read the I-JEDI fact sheet. The tool has been developed and applied in several countries and can now be used for any country around the world using the custom I-JEDI tool. The I-JEDI Model was developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
