Enhancing State Clean Energy Workforce Training to Meet Demand. Issue Brief
Saha, Devashree
NGA Center for Best Practices
Recent state policy and federal funding initiatives are driving the demand for clean energy in both the short and long term. This increased demand has created the need for many more workers trained or retrained in a variety of clean energy jobs. In response, states are utilizing funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) to expand existing workforce training efforts and to create new programs that will meet the demand. ARRA funding provides an opportunity for states to build upon and expand existing workforce efforts now and to develop innovative solutions that can help sustain their progress in the future, beyond the end of ARRA funding. Many strategies are similar to those used for other sectors. In addition, states are developing new ways to partner with a diverse set of players, leverage private sector resources, and make workforce training more accessible. (Contains 40 notes.)
