DOE training Program to improve Energy Efficiency
The US Department of Energy (DOE) announced a USD 30 million funding in new workforce training initiatives as part of its actions towards reducting the carbon footprint of buildings. Residential and commercial buildings are responsible for a third of GHG emissions in the US, use about 40% of the nation’s energy, and waste more than $100 billion annually due to energy inefficiency.
The fund will expand the DOE’s support for organizations – including unions, trade associations, and educational institutions – that train and support career pathways for a diverse, qualified, and well-paid workforce that enables high-performance buildings.
