Employment Impacts of a Large-scale Deep Building Energy Retrofit Programme in Hungary

Duration: 
February, 2010 to June, 2010
Funding: 
European Climate Foundation

The objective of the project was to produce a report estimating the potential net employment impacts of a large-scale building energy retrofit programme in Hungary. While it is clear that such a programme would generate a substantial reduction of energy consumption in the country, this report quantifies an important co-benefit that can provide a new entry to the policy-making processes – the one on employment.
