Working Paper
The article offers information on the six subgroups of the renewable energy sub-sector as defined by the International Energy Agency which include geothermal, biomass, and hydro. The exclusion of the renewable energy Research & Development and manufacturing as it might not ultimately result in emission reductions is stated. It adds that the six subgroups are considered renewable energy power sources as climate-specific by nature.
