NASEO – The Energy Workforce Landscape and Outlooks for Clean Energy Funding

With Congress’s passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and continued progress on the Build Back Better Act, the United States will usher historic levels of funding and investment in clean energy and climate technologies. Governments at all levels – federal, state, and local – as well as partners from academia and the private sector will be critical to ensure smooth implementation, impactful projects, and meaningful and lasting benefits, particularly for communities who have historically been underrepresented in investments and benefits.

The Historically Black Colleges and Universities Clean Energy Initiative (CEI) and the National Association of State Energy Officials are partnering to host a series of discussions to examine and advance opportunities for HBCUs and State Energy Offices to forge new partnerships, relationships, and innovations in the context of upcoming federal and state investments across key sectors – the electric grid, renewable energy, energy efficiency, transportation, and agriculture.  Presentations and facilitated conversations will unpack the workforce, economic development, and equity implications of state planning, policy design, and implementation of clean energy and climate solutions.

Members of NASEO, CEI, and other interested stakeholders are highly encouraged to attend to learn about partnership models, potential funding, and ways to leverage the degree programs and community development capacities of HBCUs and other Minority-Serving Institutions.
