According to a new report by Environment California Research & Policy Center, California's ground-breaking clean energy and environmental policies are creating new job opportunities for Californians and the state's educational institutions are stepping up to the plate to train the next generation of clean energy workers to build and operate California's clean energy future.
The new report, "Building a Clean Energy Workforce: Preparing Californians for New Opportunities in the State's Green Economy" documents the nearly 300 green job training programs at over 130 institutions throughout the state with up to 15,000 students enrolled annually. According to the report, more than 500,000 employees currently work in "green jobs" in the state, and the energy efficiency sector is projected to employ two to four times as many workers in 2020 compared to 2008.
