Value added and employment in the Saarland hydrogen economy
This study will determine to what extent the transformation to a hydrogen economy in Saarland will affect the infra-structure, the production methods of energy-intensive industries or the automotive industry, as well as import requirements and export opportunities. Particular focus will be placed on the consequences for the Saarland economy and the needs of the labor market and thus for the education and training system. To ensure that the transformation to a green hydrogen economy is not slowed down by shortages of skilled workers, it is necessary to identify at an early stage which sectors and which professions will be needed in the future. It must also be evaluated whether the current development path in the education system can cover these future needs and to what extent Saarland, with its borders to France and Luxembourg, has particular advantages or disadvantages with regard to future shortages of skilled workers.
