Energy transition and employment: Opportunities for a sustainable future

Summary and recommendations of the SER advisory report: Energietransitie en Werkgelegenheid: Kansen voor een duurzame toekomst, 19 April 2018 (2018/03).

The consequences of the energy transition for the labour market are difficult to predict. For this reason, the Dutch government asked the Social and Economic Council of the Netherlands (SER) for advice on the following questions:

  1. What does the energy transition mean for developments in employment opportunities in the different sectors and economic regions?
  2. How can public authorities, employers and employees best respond to the opportunities and threats identified by the SER?

The SER’s advisory report forms a key element of the Dutch input to the Integrated National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP). In addition, this advisory report provides a basis for the theme of labour market and training in the National Climate Agreement that is to be concluded in 2018.
