This briefing paper, and the supporting report upon which it is based, fill the evidence gap about the employment effects of lower carbon vehicles. They summarise a review of published literature undertaken by CE Delft. The study considered employment effects of technologies to improve the efficiency of current conventional vehicles using internal combustion engines, and the possible consequences of a long term shift to e-mobility using electric or hydrogen powered vehicles.
The key conclusion from the study is that ’employment benefits are likely’ to result from CO2 regulations.
