Residential Energy Workforce Gap Analysis


CETI is working on a project with Kinetic West, BW Research Partnership, and Uncommon Bridges to conduct a residential energy workforce gap analysis for a contract with the Washington State Department of Commerce.

The study will include a landscape analysis of current and projected energy workforce needs; mapping existing workforce pathways, with a focus on outcomes for people historically underrepresented within these jobs; and meaningful engagement with people developing workforce strategies.

The report will include recommendations for how Commerce might prepare Washington’s workforce to make residential building improvements to meet the state’s emissions goals. This work would also inform the design and implementation of the home energy rebates that Commerce aims to make available in late 2024/early 2025.
