Abstract

Societies around the world are on the margin of a deep and urgently required transformation in the way they produce and use energy. The needed transition in the energy sector is moving the world away from the consumption of fossil fuels towards cleaner, renewable forms of energy. This paper gives an overview to the drivers behind renewable energy as being the many economic, social, political, and environmental imperatives that might motivate society to pursue this transition for a positive outcome. The rapid deployment of renewable energy has been driven mainly by a wide range of objectives (drivers), which include advancing economic development, improving energy security, enhancing energy access and mitigating climate change. Altogether, these drivers might be described as the pursuit of sustainable development, where economic prosperity is advanced around the world while negative impacts are minimized. Furthermore, the paper discusses the situation in Republic of Macedonia from this aspect.
