The US renewable energy sector employs over 750,000 people -- nearly 8% of the global total -- and is undergoing a sustained period of rapid growth. The solar industry alone now accounts for one out of every 83 new jobs and is experiencing job growth at 17x the national average. Despite the Trump administration's pledged support for coal power and 30% tariff on solar panels, most industry and financial analysts agree that clean energy jobs are not only here to stay, but will continue to grow unabated by adverse policy implementation.
Why is there so much certainty about the future of the clean energy sector? What are the key areas of growth, and how is the industry projected to change over mid- and long-term time horizons? And what do the jobs supporting this sector entail, and what skill sets are recruiters looking for in candidates?
Join us at Urban Future Lab in Brooklyn for a detailed panel discussion on these topics and more, led by leading cleantech recruiters and industry insiders. The panel discussion will be followed by a networking event hosted by EnergeiaWorks. Registration information is below.
This event is geared for a wide-ranging audience, including those who are actively looking to network with recruiters, merely interested in understanding drivers of the clean energy economy, and anywhere in between.
