U.S. Energy and Employment Report Briefing for the Nation’s Community Colleges

In March of 2016, the U.S. Department of Energy released the agency’s first annual analysis of how changes in America’s energy profile are affecting national employment in multiple energy sectors. By using a combination of existing energy employment data and a new survey of energy sector employers, the inaugural U.S. Energy and Employment Report (USEER) provides a broad view of the national current energy employment landscape.  

By looking at such a wide portion of the energy economy, USEER can provide community college faculty, administration and staff, with a clearer picture of how changes in energy technology, systems, and usage are affecting the economy and creating or displacing jobs in the nation and in their region. This includes trends in projected job growth and industry hiring difficulty that can potentially translate into job and career opportunities for students as well as provide useful data for workforce development, and course creation. A significant number of energy and advanced manufacturing occupations and industries analyzed by USEER have education and career pathways already being deployed by the Nation’s community college systems. 

Join the U.S. Department of Education and Department of Energy as they provide information to community colleges on career opportunities for students in the field of energy.Click to edit this placeholder text.
