The European Commission, DG XII, has published a report, entitled "Technological progress for competitiveness and employment - the energy-environment case", based on research conducted under the Community's specific RTD programme in the field of non-nuclear energy (JOULE II).

The objective of the report is to assist the Commission in the formulation of an "energy-environment-employment-technology" action plan, expanding on issues raised in the Commission's White Paper on Employment. The action plan will be aimed at:

- Clarifying the complex links between energy, the environment and employment;
- Assessing the impact of energy-related instruments and policies;
- Examining the role of technologies and energy systems in creating employment.

The report gives an overview of the cleanest and most efficient technologies in the energy sector and evaluates their impact on employment, competitiveness and the environment. It also examines political support measures and their impact both on the improvement of energy and environmental conditions, and in macro-economic terms.
