Skills and knowledge gaps prevent clean energy, efficiency, electrification, and other sustainability solutions from being implemented. By addressing these gaps with specialized education centers, applicants can accelerate deployment of a skilled workforce ready for the clean energy economy.
Education can target underserved communities and give people access to high-road jobs in the clean energy economy. Consider designing training programs aimed at re-training workers from fossil fuel industries, if applicable, as well to help with workforce transitions.
