Energy efficiency job creation is the backbone of the US clean energy economy, but jobs in efficiency have expanded at a such a rapid pace in recent years that they also currently account for 25 percent of all jobs across the entire energy sector. The 3rd “Energy Efficiency Jobs in America” report from E4TheFuture and the national, nonpartisan business group E2 (Environmental Entrepreneurs) charts energy efficiency employment numbers nationwide, ranking all 50 states and Washington, D.C. on the number of full time energy efficiency jobs.
E4TheFuture and E2 will release Energy Efficiency Jobs in America on Monday, September 16, 2019. The report will include maps and charts showing both geographical and by-industry and technology distribution of efficiency jobs, growth trends, state and federal policy recommendations, and factsheets for all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Nearly two and a half million Americans work in energy efficiency, an industry that added more new jobs in 2018 than any other in the U.S. energy sector. In alphabetical order, the top-10 states for energy efficiency jobs are: California, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas and Virginia. (The ranking by number of jobs will not be disclosed until September 16, 2019). The Report identifies top states for EE job growth as well as the distribution of jobs across business sizes.
