Energy and green jobs



The WP analyzes on the one hand, which energy sectors will benefit from the transition of European energy systems in terms of employment and, on the other hand, which ones will suffer from job destruction. In addition to this, the WP investigates whether the supply of labour will be able to meet projected demand and how to deal with eventual shortages. Furthermore it will question the possible fiscal implications for the EU and member states.
