1 Working for a Sustainable Future Green Workforce Development: Preparing Angelinos for Green Jobs that Promote the Green Economy in Los Angeles Presented by Marcy Drummond Vice President of Academic Affairs Los Angeles Trade-Technical College April 16, 2008

2 Working for a Sustainable Future GREEN WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT Providing adequate numbers of prepared, skilled individuals for green jobs in green businesses necessary to promote the green economy.

3 Defining the Green Economy A rapidly growing billion-dollar sector that includes renewable energy sources, organic produce and products, green buildings, alternative fuel vehicles, and more. Source: Ella Baker Center for Human Rights. ellabakercenter.org/page.phpellabakercenter.org/page.php

4 Defining a Green Business Businesses that develop new technology that spans a broad range of products, services, and processes that lower performance costs, reduce or eliminate negative ecological impact, and improve the productive and responsible use of natural resources. Source: Cleantech Group, LLC.

5 Defining a Green Business Includes related business activities that either support the wide-spread application of new technologies such as solar system installations or apply new technologies as service providers for instance in emissions monitoring.

6 Defining Green Jobs "Green jobs are family-supporting, middle-skill jobs in the primary sectors of a clean-energy economy - - efficiency, renewables, and alternative transportation and fuels."

7 Working for a Sustainable Future DEMAND for a Green Workforce

8 Working for a Sustainable Future Americas growing green economy faces a looming labor shortage in sectors like manufacturing, construction, and utilities.

9 Working for a Sustainable Future The National Renewable Energy Lab has identified a shortage of skills and training as a leading barrier to renewable energy and energy efficiency growth.

10 Working for a Sustainable Future This labor shortage is only likely to get more severe as baby-boomers skilled in current energy technologies retire.

11 Working for a Sustainable Future For example in the energy sector about 55% of the workforce, nationwide, is over the age of 45. Many of these workers will either retire or prepare to retire within the next 10 years. Source: Drummond, Marcy (2008). Los Angeles utility sector: Workforce Needs and Challenges. Regional Economic Development Institute, Los Angeles Trade-Technical College.

12 Working for a Sustainable Future In Los Angeles, employment stability will also result from the retirement of much of the energy industrys workforce. It is estimated that nearly 8,000 trades-related jobs will need to be filled in the next 5 years due to retirements. Source: Drummond, Marcy (2008).
