Nationally, the advanced energy industry now supports more than 3 million U.S. jobs — twice as many as building construction.

These jobs are made possible by the growth of markets for these products and services in this country. AEE’s Advanced Energy Now 2017 Market Report found that total U.S. revenue from the wide range of advanced energy goods and services was $200 billion in 2016, more than pharmaceutical manufacturing in this country.

In Virginia, the jobs story follows the same trend. Across multiple technologies, more than 81,000 Virginians are employed in the advanced energy sector, nearly as many as are employed in hospitals.

AEE’s Virginia profile series highlights advanced energy employees all across the Commonwealth working to help provide affordable and reliable power for all Virginians. The profile features workers from AES Energy Storage, Apex Clean Energy, Secure Futures, Schneider Electric, Sigora Solar, and Trane.
