The French SMB association has just edited a market study about green tech employment trends. Getting through 120 job-search websites in one year and gather up to 2,200 job descriptions. If REn-related jobs represent about 60% of collected jobs, EffE-related jobs (in insulation, active systems, and performance O&M) is the more dynamic. Thus, with only 575 new jobs, the number of available jobs doubled in 6 months.

According to several studies carried by NGOs, local authorities, Unions, and Economists, a succeeded Energy Transition should create from 632,000 jobs in 2030 (CNRS-Cned’s Philippe Quirion economists) to 825,000 jobs in 2050 (National Energy Agency “ADEME” and NGO “Negawatt” studies). In both cases, jobs will be mainly concentrated in buildings thermal refurbishment.
