Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm will announce the release of the 2022 U.S. Energy and Employment Report. The report outlines the continued growth of clean energy jobs, including zero-emission vehicle manufacturing and electric vehicle charging infrastructure, outpacing those in the fossil fuel industry. DOE's report confirms that bold investments are necessary to grow the field and build a strong and diverse workforce that will power the country.
In response, Sierra Club Director of Labor and Economic Justice Program Derrick Figures issued the following statement:
"Time and again, we're reminded of the near limitless potential of the clean energy industry - potential that will only be realized by bold investments that ensures equitable growth. Today's Department of Energy report is perhaps the most detailed reminder yet of what this sector could become when Congress passes bold investments in clean energy.
"As the country continues to grapple with the climate crisis threatening grid reliability and rising energy costs, the Biden administration is presenting a roadmap for how Congress can help turbocharge the clean energy economy and power the country with homegrown energy produced by union jobs here at home. Now is not the time to sitback; Congress must seize the opportunity it has and create the clean energy job boom our country needs."
