GLRPPR Sector Resource: Energy Efficiency Job Creation: Real World Experiences

Title:
Energy Efficiency Job Creation: Real World Experiences

Abstract:
In the face of sustained high unemployment, policymakers continue to seek lasting solutions that will reenergize the American workforce and create permanent job opportunities. Energy efficiency catalyzes employment opportunities that draw upon the broad range of Americans' skills. This report illustrates concrete ways in which energy efficiency has, in recent years, stimulated the creation of direct, indirect, and induced jobs. These vignettes illustrate examples of job creation resulting from energy efficiency by profiling programs, policies, investments, partnerships, and business models that have catalyzed regional increases in employment. Whereas previous ACEEE work has provided an analytic framework for how jobs are created through efficiency, this paper focuses on the jobs themselves.
