The report details a number of practical steps that can be implemented to proactively deal with the projected long-term need for skilled workers in the electric sector.
In January of 2009, the National Commission on Energy Policy (NCEP) convened a group of stakeholders with expertise in the workforce of the U.S. electric power industry. The NCEP Task
Force on America’s Future Energy Jobs brought together representatives from labor, the electric power industry, and the training and educational sectors to explore—over a series of three meetings in six months—the existing demographic makeup and anticipated workforce needs of the electric power sector, along with the training institutions and programs that support this sector. This report summarizes the insights and conclusions resulting from this effort.
