Business group estimates several hundred thousand clean energy jobs in EV, battery storage and solar

FILE – Nicholas Hartnett, owner of Pure Power Solar, carries a panel as he and Brian Hoeppner, right, install a solar array on the roof of a home in Frankfort, Ky., July 17, 2023. A business group that advocates for clean energy says at least $86 billion in investments have been announced, with the biggest likely job gains in electric vehicles, battery storage and solar energy.

The IRA, signed August 2022, contains $500 billion in new federal spending to lower healthcare costs, increase tax revenues and“We’re in the biggest economic revolution we’ve seen in generations thanks to the Inflation Reduction Act and other clean energy policies,” said E2 executive director Bob Keefe.

“We would not have Weirton without West Virginia and we would not be going as fast as we’re going without the IRA,” Jaramillo said. Chung said many North Carolina community colleges partner with private companies to develop local training programs and job opportunities. “As community colleges develop a rhythm for training the type of workers these companies need, that’s going to enhance the appeal of our workforce and state as a business location to more and more these clean energy companies,” he said.

Although investments in clean energy are “on hyperdrive,” other factors were supporting the clean energy labor transition before the IRA, said Joseph Kane, a researcher at the Brookings Institution nonprofit research organization.
