The role of the European PV industry for the Europe's jobs and education today and tomorrow

Objective

As the employment situation is a key political issue the following questions concerning the European PV industry will be answered:
-How many net jobs will be created and how many will be replaced by the expanding European photovoltaic?
-What are the qualification profiles of employees needed in the future to allow the on-going expansion of the European PV industry?
-How should the higher education institutions react?

An input-output model with special emphasis on the production structures of the different stages of PV production, installation, operation and maintenance will be developed. This will be based on the available input-output tables of key member countries of the EU. The model will allow the calculation of the expected numbers of net created jobs by the European PV industry. Different market scenarios e.g. up to 2020 will be fed into this model. The model will allow calculating the number of created jobs in dependence of -Different scenarios for the PV market development up to 2020.
