America’s Largest Energy Sector is Poised to Power U.S. Recovery.

Energy Efficiency (EE)—the largest U.S. energy sector—can repower America’s economy as we work to overcome the economic effects of the pandemic. As lawmakers and policymakers seek to get America back to work after the COVID-19 health and economic crisis, every job matters. From 2015 to 2019, the energy efficiency sector became one of the biggest, fastest-growing, and most beneficial sectors for both our economy and our environment.

This report details the size of this important employment sector, the troubles it is facing due to COVID-19, and how focusing recovery policies on efficiency can help boost America’s economy— quickly and for the long run.

The 2020 Energy Efficiency Jobs in America report includes an 11-page national summary and individual factsheets for all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia that include more detailed findings including job totals for every congressional and legislative district, industry and technology breakdowns, and maps of every state’s top counties.

This annual report focuses solely on the energy sector of the economy. Jobs in retail trade, vehicle efficiency-related work, and the 4.2 million jobs related to efficient manufacturing processes are excluded from these numbers.
