The Biden administration has issued three recent reports showing growth in clean energy jobs as well as record investment in the sector
- In 2022, both energy jobs and clean energy jobs grew in every state and in Washington, D.C., according to the Department of Energy’s annual U.S. Energy and Employment Jobs Report. In a Monday blog, the White House cited this and two other new reports as indicators of a “Bidenomics” success.
- Clean energy jobs grew by 3.9% last year, DOE found, and the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages found that employment in power generation and supply has recovered after a several-year downward trend, reaching its highest levels in a decade in the first quarter of 2023.
- “Nationwide in 2022, clean energy jobs grew by 114,000 (3.9 percent) to 3.1 million jobs,” the White House said.
