How are the employment effects of the Energiewende distributed within Germany? What components contribute to growth impacts on a regional level? The main goal of the study was to develop a methodology which is applicable to all renewable energy technologies in future research. The results show that gross employment is particularly high in the northwestern regions of Germany. However, especially the indirect effects are spread out over the whole country. Regions in the south not only profit from the delivery of specific components, but also from other industry and service inputs.
