On behalf of UNDP Ukraine and supported by the Federal Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Sefety (BMUB) based on a decision of the Parliament of the Federal Republic of Germany.
Within the framework of the present expertise for the German Wind Energy Association and Deutsche Messe AG, DIW Econ prepared an assessment of the macroeconomic employment effects of the energy transition. For this purpose, on the one hand the positive economic employment impulses of the energy transition through the expansion of renewable energies and through energy efficiency measures were worked out, and on the other hand, adverse effects in the area of the conventional energy industry and in other economic sectors were contrasted with the positive effects.
