How shifting investment towards low-carbon sectors impacts employment: Three determinants under scrutiny

Quentin Perrier () and Philippe Quirion

Energy Economics, 2018, vol. 75, issue C, 464-483

Abstract: The threat of climate change requires redirecting investment towards low-carbon sectors, and this shift generates heated debates about its impact on employment. Many studies exist, most of which use CGE or Input-Output (IO) models. However, the economic mechanisms at play remain unclear. This paper disentangles the channels of job creation and studies to what extent the results of simpler IO models diverge from CGE results.
