Energy transition in Baden-Württemberg – Impacts on value added and employment

Three years after the decisions for the energy transition estimates on goal-achievment of energy policy and their effects on value added and employment are available at the national level. The question of how the energy transition affects individual federal states and spread the observable and measurable economic effects in the region is largely unanswered. This question will pursue the question for the state of Baden-Württemberg.

The focus of the studie are the impact of energy policy on value added and employment in Baden-Württemberg in the context of the specific structure of the country as well as its energy policy objectives. In particular opportunities and challenges for the economy and society for as many aspects of energy policy are to be presented jointly. This involves a description of the effects of energy policy both on the numerical amounts of value creation and employment (project module A) as well as on the quality of employment (project module B).
