There have been multiple calls for investment in green jobs, skills and infrastructure to help achieve the UK’s net-zero target while supporting economic recovery from COVID-19 and a just transition away from high carbon sectors. Employment and economic benefits are often cited as part of efforts to lobby for investment in clean energy projects such as renewables, low carbon heating and energy efficiency.

This webinar hosted in conjunction with UKERC will present key findings and policy recommendations arising from UKERC’s latest project exploring low carbon energy jobs. In particular, it considers whether policy-driven expansion of low carbon energy actually creates jobs, particularly if the policies in question require subsidies that are paid for through bills or taxes.
