Beyond climate protection, the energy transition can create jobs and a better, healthier life for billions of people worldwide. Environmental scientist Sebastian Helgenberger and his team at IASS are spreading the word about the many positive side-effects and opportunities that the renewable energy world can bring. Within the COBENEFITS project at IASS, they work with partners in India, South Africa, Vietnam and Turkey, where they help to identify country-specific co-benefits of climate policies and build new alliances. With political partners in government departments and ministries, COBENEFITS connects the social and economic opportunities of renewable energies to climate change mitigation strategies.
