Clean Energy Economy: Generating Jobs, Producing Power

Recent reports indicate Maryland residents and local economies benefit directly from over 147,000 jobs in the energy sector, which continues to see job and wage growth. Can the state expect continued job growth and wage increases? How could forecasted advancements in energy technologies and plans for the Grid of the Future impact employment opportunities? And what investments are we making in training to prepare a skilled workforce to fill those jobs?

Speakers will discuss the potential economic impact and how the projected deployment of renewable energy, energy management, and storage technologies will make the power grid more resilient while creating future jobs at the 2017 MACo Summer Conference Session, “The Clean Energy Economy – Generating Jobs, Producing Power.”
