Project status:

Duration: 
Dec, 2010 - Apr, 2012
The goal of the research project is to gauge the net employment impacts of a large-scale, deep building energy-efficiency renovation program in Poland, in the understanding that the low employment rate of the Polish economy makes this a key entry point for decision-making. Therefore, employment impacts strongly correlate with the dynamics of the investments flowing towards building energy retrofits. The study was commissioned by the European Climate Foundation.

Employment benefits of large-scale energy-efficient building renovations in Hungary

While significantly reducing Hunga­rian greenhouse gas emissions and addressing other social problems at the same time, up to 130,000 jobs could be created in Hungary by the end of this decade through a large-scale program for energy-efficient building renovations. This has been revealed by a study carried out by the Center for Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Policy (3CSEP) at Central European University (CEU) in Budapest, which was released on June 8, 2010.
