Understanding supply chain employment and skills implications of energy infrastructure investment

Project Director: Will Eadson
Project Duration: 2020-2021

Not enough is known about the detailed supply chain, employment and skills implications of investing in urban low carbon energy infrastructure. In particular, there is a need to better understand the nature and geography of jobs in low carbon energy sectors, and how employment and skills support can ensure that those who most need work can access new opportunities.

Using a case study of Sheffield City Region this study is carrying out detailed studies of six energy sectors seen as important to the area’s energy and economic future: district heating, air source heat pumps, domestic insulation, hydrogen fuel, modular nuclear and carbon capture and storage.

The project team also includes Aidan While (University of Sheffield) and Andrew Johnston (Coventry University).
