The environmental and energy study Institute just a crammed five-page Datasheet on energy efficiency and renewable energy jobs. National and State numbers from different sources carry the punch, that in the year 2012 alone, there were more than 110,000 jobs in the clean energy.
It refers definition and their calculation on the Bureau of Labor Statistics green jobs of 3.4 million green jobs in the United States in the fourth quarter of 2011. Some of the figures going back three or four years; Some figures are forecasts.
The result is considerable, which sum up green jobs and contribute to a rebounding economy. So, let's Herald this message and creeping over the hyped expectation green jobs to stop.
I often see Dr. Sarah White strategy targeting the center of Wisconsin. In November last year Sarah workforce education conference with this Sage spoke to our clean energy statement: "green jobs are not a myth, not a failed initiative, she simply got mixed with a failed economy."
As visionary, Dr. Debra Rowe predicted that "A green touch to have any job."
And that's exactly what we see.
There are green jobs as obvious System Installer, energy auditors, and designer. And there is a growing span of jobs which mix green skills with traditional. Therefore, we are at meeting with groups such as the refrigeration service engineers society, the air conditioning contractors of America, the International Association of electrical inspectors and International Association of plumbing and mechanical officials to name of a few.
We see green skills training mix in other educational programs. Hudson Valley Community College surrounded by two new PV courses, two-year degree can be taken in the context of their existing associate in occupational studies. Lane Community College created a renewable energy technician option as part of its two-year associate in science degree programme applied for energy management engineers. Trading add training programs, their basic training training options such as photovoltaics.
This does not mean that we stop tracking, renewable energy and energy efficiency. The solar Foundation census reports are crucial for the matching jobs with market growth.
It means that it's time to look beyond the obvious - other indicators, the green jobs in other colours come.
