Labour market conditions are a key but, as yet, insufficiently researched determinant and driver of the outcomes of a wide range of net zero actions (just as they are for any substantive change playing out in a dynamic economy environment). In this briefing we summarise some key and quite generic issues associated with labour market conditions, and labour supply constraints in particular, and describe how this might impact on both project delivery and wider economy outcomes associated with net zero activity. Our insights described here are gained through wider economy modelling undertaken across a range of policy domains such as CCS, energy efficiency and electric vehicles.
