Washington Workforce Energy Convening
June 30 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
Washington State is a leader in bringing forth new clean energy systems to meet our climate goals. To facilitate growth in the energy sector, modernize the grid, and adapt to new, innovative clean energy sources, Washington will need a trained, diverse, and distributed workforce. Workforce issues are currently one of the most pressing limitations facing the sector.
On Thursday, June 30th from 11:00-3:00 pm PT, this hybrid event will bring together utilities, energy providers, research institutions, non-governmental organizations, energy installers, and community members to address pressing workforce challenges.
Participants will engage in round table discussions in multiple locations around the state, including the Tri-Cities, Centralia, and Seattle, to create an energy workforce gap analysis and inform needed research to identify pathways to create a well-staffed energy future.
