Brookings: Building a Pipeline to Energy Sector Careers Through Service Years
December 1, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Brookings is hosting a webcast on Building a Pipeline to Energy Sector Careers Through Service Years on Thursday, December 1st, from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM.
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) are launching new investments to advance the nation’s climate resilience and clean energy goals. One key to achieving these goals is developing new strategies to recruit, train, and hire people to carry out the work. Service year programs—including service and conservation corps programs funded through AmeriCorps and other federal agencies—have long played a role in environmental resilience efforts in local communities. These local service year programs, state energy agencies, and state service commissions can work in partnership to develop a talent pipeline to fill new clean energy infrastructure positions.
