U.S. Department of Energy-Sponsored Map to Guide Students Into Careers Without Degrees

Community colleges and job seekers can use this resource tool to combat climate change, support infrastructure, and bolster the workforce.

Energy efficiency has a key role to play at the intersection of these goals but access to workers remains a challenge in this sector.
