The world’s major countries have focused on the renewable energy industry as the solution to climate change and the energy crisis. Nevertheless, there are no studies on the economic effects of the renewable energy industry. This study analyzed the economic effects of Korea's renewable energy industry by using the 2010 Input-Output Table. It is estimated that Korea's renewable energy industry made a production-induced effect of 2.0262 won, and a value-added-induced effect of 0.6138 won through an increase in output growth of 1 won, and an employment- induced effect of 2.3046 labors through an increase in output growth of 1 billion won. Both the effect ratio and the response ratio were greater than 1, which means the renewable energy industry is an intermediate manufacturing industry whose forward linkage effect and backward linkage effects are large. These results show differences with previous studies that classified electricity sector and renewable energy industry into final primary production industries. It is expected that the economic effects of the renewable energy industry will become greater in the future. Therefore, research on statistics related to the renewable energy industry is needed for more precise analysis.
