Economic and labor market impacts of a green hydrogen value chain

Establishing a green hydrogen value chain will increase labor demand. At the same time, a shift away from fossil fuels in favor of hydrogen will have negative impacts on some economic sectors induced by higher prices.

In this webinar, we will show impacts of establishing a green hydrogen value chain on GDP and employment in Germany until 2045. The results are based on a scenario analysis that models a possible future hydrogen ramp-up.
