In 2009 and 2010 ATEEC facilitated a series of seven regional Energy Conversations. The primary purpose of the conversations was to obtain a snapshot view of existing and upcoming energy jobs and to determine which jobs are currently needed in different regions of the country including the Mid-Atlantic North Central Northwest South Central Southeast Southwest and West. The resulting report on these Energy Conversations is intended to provide a preliminary labor market analysis and needs assessment. This information allows educational organizations to most effectively target regional energy industry requirements and to provide both short-and long-term education and training for the energy technicians of the 21st century workforce.
In each energy conversation participants included business industry non-profit and government agency representatives as well as two- and four-year college environmental technology educators. The groups addressed the following items at a regional level:
- Specific technician-level jobs typically found in the area
- Types of certification required by these jobs
- Labor market data resources for the region
- Most prevalent and fastest-growing jobs
