The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced the results of its 2023 U.S. Energy and Employment Report (USEER). The study, which tracks employment trends across the energy sector, showed that in 2022, the energy workforce added nearly 300,000 jobs. In addition, clean energy jobs increased in every state, adding 114,000 jobs across the country. Clean energy jobs now account for more than 40% of total energy jobs. When broken down further, clean energy technologies added 21,000 jobs, and industries related to zero emissions vehicles added over 38,000 jobs.

In a recent quote, U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm said, “Today’s report shows that the clean energy transition is accelerating, with job growth across every pocket of America, and that unionized employers are filling these new positions with much more ease than non-unionized employers. Thanks to President Biden’s historic Investing in America agenda, we expect to see steady growth of jobs to make and build a resilient and clean energy system offering good-paying and secure employment opportunities to America’s workers across the country.”
