The stage is set for historic investments in energy efficiency (EE) to extend across all sectors of the U.S. economy, underscoring efficiency’s crucial role in addressing the serious pollution impacts of our built environment. To achieve U.S. climate goals, the EE workforce — already the largest

in the clean energy industry — must grow significantly. Prioritizing EE workforce development in every state is essential to meeting the demands of this moment and creating a more diverse workforce.

In construction, the largest subsector of workers within EE jobs, training and certifications help to ensure quality building performance. Efficiency construction workers are in high demand, and those with key credentials earn competitive salaries, contributing to better buildings and energy-efficient infrastructure.

This report serves as a baseline by which to measure future EE job growth enabled by large-scale investments, driven by energy policy.
