Panel 9: Green jobs: mirage or miracle?

Panel 9 Green jobs: mirage or miracle?

In recent years EU climate and energy policies have come under pressure from austerity on the one hand and low energy-prices in the US on the other. This panel will focus on green jobs. It will ask how the employment potential of green investments can be exploited. Does the low energy price competition by the US threaten industrial jobs in Europe? What can be done against this?
