This document reports the results of a study on how the improved energy performance of social housing has an impact on the jobs and the skill needs of the employees of social housing companies in France. A survey showed that the employees of the two investigated social housing companies do not see their job fundamentally changed, and that they identify no crucial missing skill, as they have already been trained on low-energy buildings. Nevertheless, more time and explanations are needed towards low-energy building occupants.
