Workforce Analysis Reports

BPA is committed to making America’s homes more energy efficient one state at a time.

As an integral part of its state work, BPA supports the individuals and organizations that make up the clean energy industry by identifying key trends and issues that vary per state, and focusing its efforts on specific initiatives that target these trends. One way that BPA supports individual states is through Workforce Analysis Reports.

With federal and state funding, BPA is able to conduct research in specific states to identify key challenges, strengths, and areas of opportunity. BPA then translates its findings into an in-depth report with key recommendations for how each state can effectively gain and leverage resources to propel the industry and support its frontline workforce.
