Recruiting diverse talent

The Problem

Unstandardized Jobs & Training

Energy job growth is outpacing overall US job growth by more than 40 percent, with wind and solar technician jobs representing 2 of the top 5 fastest-growing occupations. Federal incentives are spurring a manufacturing renaissance in this country, with 42,000+ manufacturing jobs announced in the past year and a half, providing new opportunities for those looking the branch out into a clean power career. Meanwhile, labor force participation is down 5 percent from 20 years ago.

As a nascent industry, today’s youth, especially those from disadvantaged communities, do not know about the career pathways available to them in clean energy. As a result, the clean energy workforce does not represent the richness of America’s diversity, and the industry loses out on attracting and retaining exceptional talent.

The Solution

Clean energy careers campaign

Working in partnership with community-based organizations, public schools, the military, training institutions, and national and local workforce councils, CPI is building a targeted campaign that attracts a more diverse talent pipeline into clean energy careers.
