U.S. Clean Energy Jobs Report

U.S. Clean Energy Jobs Report

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently released the 2023 U.S. Energy and Employment Report (USEER), a comprehensive study designed to track and understand employment trends across the energy sector. As the private sector continues to announce major investments in U.S. energy, the 2023 USEER shows that the energy workforce added almost 300,000 jobs (+3.8% growth) in 2022.

According to the report, clean energy jobs grew across all 50 states and D.C. – with the top-three states for clean energy jobs growth being California, which added 13,000 jobs (+3.2%); West Virginia, which added 7,000 jobs (+19%); and Texas, which added 5,100 jobs (+3.5%). Clean energy technologies, such as solar and wind, accounted for more than 84% of net new electric power generation jobs, adding over 21,000 jobs (+3.6% growth), and jobs related to zero emissions vehicles saw nearly 21% growth, adding over 38,000 jobs. The most rapid growth was in battery electric vehicle jobs, which added more than 28,000 jobs (increasing by 27%). This is almost as many added jobs as in the gasoline and diesel vehicle sector, but at a growth rate that was 17 times faster.
