WASHINGTON, September 7, 2021 – Advanced Energy Economy (AEE), a national business organization working to expand market opportunities for companies leading the energy transition, is now making it easier to find career opportunities in the advanced energy industry.
In celebration of Labor Day, AEE has put together new tools aimed at ensuring advanced energy recaptures America’s manufacturing glory for U.S. workers. Among these tools is AEE’s new Members Page, which also serves as a Career Portal for those looking to work in the advanced energy industry.
Each company logo on the page now takes you directly to their careers page. This is designed to make it easier to access thousands of active job postings in the advanced energy industry.
“Advanced energy is a growing industry, with more than 3 million employed nationally at the end of last year and employers saying they expect to add jobs by 8 percent by the end of this year,” said Nat Kreamer, CEO of AEE. “Our members are the leading companies in advanced energy, and we are happy to connect those who would like to join our industry to the opportunities our members have available.”
AEE has also launched a #JobsWeek toolkit featuring expertise and insights for advanced energy companies looking to boost domestic manufacturing, create good jobs, and expand business opportunities.
The U.S. advanced energy and transportation industry currently employs more than 3.2 million Americans, and as noted in AEE’s Labor Day blog post, federal policies now under consideration to decarbonize the nation’s electric grid and electrify transportation would grow the advanced energy manufacturing sector by 365 percent in five years and create nearly one million jobs.
“Much of the technology needed to decarbonize our nation’s electric grid and electrify our transportation is already being made in America, which means investing in the advanced energy sector leads directly to more U.S. manufacturing jobs,” said Harry Godfrey, an AEE director, who moderated our recent “Made in America” webinar and panel discussion last month and co-leads the Advanced Energy Manufacturing and Infrastructure Working Group for AEE members.
