Green Technologies

The renewable energy industry is expected to generate more than 20 million jobs by 2030.

In the IBEW, we don’t just talk green. Thousands of our members are already at work in the green economy. And, for nearly a decade, the National Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee has incorporated renewable energy into the curriculum in many of our 300 training centers in North America.

Today, we are keeping in sync with technological advances in wind, solar, nuclear and other developing sectors and providing new training modules.

With “Working Green,” we are stepping up our game. On this site, we share how our members are preparing for – and in many cases performing – the green jobs of the future today.

We also discuss the efforts of IBEW and other labor organizations to make sure that jobs in the renewable energy industry lead to decent, family-sustaining careers. And we acquaint our readers with the full scope of the IBEW’s involvement and opportunities in nuclear power, solar, wind and more.

The work force of the future is already here. We hope that “Working Green” helps you get the most out of this rapidly-advancing sector of our economy.
