This work explores the question of the dynamic link between the development of renewable energies and growth. The main results of this work can be summarized as follows. First, the results show that efforts to develop renewable electricity production must be sustained in the short term because the relationship between renewable electricity production and GDP per capita is asymmetrical. In this case Algeria, Egypt, Morocco and Turkey are concerned by this strategy which will allow them to increase well-being in the long term. Second, the current level of renewable electricity production in Tunisia and Israel is low enough to have a significant effect on well-being. These two countries must therefore continue their efforts to produce renewable electricity in order to reach levels that allow them to have an impact on well-being. Third, Iran and Lebanon are in a strategy that has a negative impact on well-being, namely the production of hydroelectricity. They must try to develop other sources of energy by exploiting their potential in wind and solar.
