At just over 500,000 workers, advanced energy employs three times as many Californians as the motion picture, TV, and radio industry; more than agriculture, forestry, and fishing; and approaching construction.
With one in every five advanced energy workers nationwide, California has the largest advanced energy industry by employment of any state in the country. Employment in California’s advanced energy industry grew 18% last year, six times the rate of statewide employment growth. Employers engaged in advanced energy business also expect to increase their workforce by 8% this year.

These are some of the results of this AEE Institute survey of more than 800 businesses doing business in California, the second study of advanced energy employment in the state conducted by BW Research Partnership, a leading workforce and economic development research firm.
