What is an energy efficiency job? ACEEE aims to answer
October 16, 2012 - ACEEE has released a series of six profiles of “real-world experiences” in energy efficiency job creation. The paper, aptly entitled “Energy Efficiency Job Creation: Real World Experiences”, describes programs, policies, investments, partnerships, and business models that have catalyzed regional increases in employment.

While previous ACEEE work has provided an analytic framework for how jobs are created through efficiency, ACEEE says this paper focuses on the jobs themselves.
Each profile serves as an independent portrait of the various driving forces behind energy efficiency job creation, illustrates the diversity of energy efficiency jobs, and demonstrates the extent to which they draw upon Americans’ existing skills and competencies.
