Job creation through energy efficiency

Watch Iive

Background information

The Covid-19 pandemic and the associated economic impacts have had significant ramifications on job markets worldwide. Governments around the world are now implementing actions to support job creation and economic recovery. The IEA's Sustainable Recovery Plan demonstrates that these imperatives can be well aligned with clean energy transition goals, and that energy efficiency is a central element.

Policymakers seeking to understand how to create linkages between energy efficiency actions and job creation can benefit from learning from experts and peers that have addressed the same questions. Please join our virtual workshop to explore how to measure, track, and make visible the job impacts of energy efficiency, and how those connections can support stronger actions.


Please join us on September 25 at 12h CEST to hear from a diverse group of energy sector leaders including:

  • Dr. Gaël Callonnec, Coordinator of Energy Transition Modelling Programmes, Agency of the Ecological Transition, France
  • Ms. Sharon Gil, Senior Programme Officer, UN Environment Programme Cities Unit
  • Ms. Abla Hanna, Senior Director of Energy Efficiency, Canada
  • Mr. Philip Jordan, Vice President, BW Research, United States
  • Mr. Rob Murray-Leach, Head of Policy, Energy Efficiency Council, Australia
  • Mr. Tomasz Majszyk, Assistant Principal of Residential Energy Efficiency, Department of Communications, Climate Action, & Environment

 The discussion will be followed by a moderated Q&A.
