Setting up circular economies for renewable energy equipment, as a crucial part of the just energy transition, can boost economies by creating jobs and increasing productivity. USAID’s Scaling Up Renewable Energy (SURE) program is working to support a transition from a linear economy for renewable energy equipment to a circular economy.

This presentation will make the case for a circular economy and explore how a circular economy is creating sustainable businesses and local jobs as well as cultivating economic opportunities throughout Asia.
