Despite overall decline, clean energy remains the biggest job creator across America’s energy sector, employing nearly three times as many workers as work in fossil fuel extraction and generation. More Americans still work in clean energy than work as middle and elementary school teachers, bankers, farmers or real estate agents. Median hourly wages for clean energy jobs also are about 25 percent higher than the national median wage, and also pay better than most fossil fuel extraction jobs.
This World Bank-UNEP joint event was designed to employers and educators connect to prepare the workforce for the green economy. The clean energy transition is creating new job opportunities around the world. With the rapid expansion of renewables and energy efficiency, along with technology disruptions, the needed skill sets of tomorrow’s workforce are going to be significantly different. How can the private sector connect with educational and training institutions to prepare the workforce for clean energy and the green economy?
The intended audience for this webinar was businesses and organizations in the green economy and clean energy sectors, higher education institutions, and workforce developers. This webinar provided two opportunities: for private sector employers to share what businesses need in their new hires; and for employers and educators to streamline communications about curricula and recruitment. The event also discussed the policies, processes, and incentive mechanisms (within the private sector, education, and the labor market) required to support the development of the green workforce.

Through discussions at the National Roundtable on the Workforce for an Inclusive Green Economy, attendees pinpointed necessary actions to reduce redundant or fragmented green workforce efforts. The outcomes provide insights into what government agencies, industry, unions, higher education institutions, and workforce agencies must do, independently and together, to address gaps in the green workforce structure and programs, effectively scale them up, and ultimately drive forward an inclusive, green economy.
The report is intended for federal and state agency program designers, policymakers, higher education, and other workforce education organizations. It is recommended that program designers reach out to this Roundtable for additional key information to incorporate into workforce programs.
