Greentech - PowerPoint Greentech - PowerPoint Presentation Transcript

  •  
  • Observations
    • Green is hot but here to stay
    • An aspect in all occupations (and phases of our lives)
      • The obvious—manufacturing, energy etc.
      • Green practices in offices, homes
      • In social sciences—public policy
      • In creative arts
      • Etc.
  •  
  • The Economic and Workforce Development Opportunities of Green Technology (prepared for LOWDL, edited version)
  • What is Green Technology I
    • Unlike a traditional industry cluster – Green Technology
    • is identified not by a connected supply chain but by the
    • objectives of the products and services that are developed
    • within this industry;
    • Lowering greenhouse gas emissions,
    • Increasing the efficient use of natural resources, and
    • Improving air and water quality
  • What is Green Technology II
    • From a workforce perspective Green Technology spans
    • all levels of education and skill sets including those
    • used for;
    • Research & Development of alternative energies,
    • Building new efficient homes and facilities, and
    • Operating cleaner more efficient utilities
  • What is Green Technology III Green Technology & the Workforce Opportunities in So. California Energy & Technology Solar power Wind power Energy Storage & Transportation Building Design Construction Building Materials Public Sector & Utilities Planning Energy Water
  • Growth of Green Technology
    • Green Technology’s growth is being driven by -
    • Legislation and government policies providing
    • incentives and requirements for cleaner development
    • and green technology -
    • Demand for sustainable energy sources & materials
    • due to advances in technology and increased costs
    • of traditional energy and commodities
    • The opportunity for economic development and
    • profit

  • Green Building in Los Angeles
    • Green building is defined as an organized effort to design,
    • Construct and maintain buildings and facilities using
    • Processes and materials which promote sustainability.
    • In LA, Green Construction (GC) firms make up about 28%
    • of the construction industry
    • GC firms expect to increase employment at more than
    • twice the rate of all other construction firms
    • More GC firms are experiencing difficulty finding and
    • recruiting qualified entry-level employees (70%)
  • Occupations in Green Building
    • Construction Occupations Changing due to GC
    • Construction Managers (7,400 / 200)
    • Cost Estimators (4,500 / 160)
    • Electricians (13,900 / 340)
    • Construction & Building Inspectors (2,800 / 105)
    • First-line Supervisors of Construction Trades (13,800/ 340)
  • Occupations in Green Building
    • Emerging Green Construction Occupations
      • Solar Installer & Technician (electrician certification)
      • Energy & Indoor Air Quality Auditor (B.A.)
      • Deconstruction worker (entry-level, 2 week intensive OJT)
      • Operations & Maintenance Technicians for HVAC and PV systems (Associates or Certification)
  • Energy & Technology in Los Angeles
    • Energy & Technology (Clean Technology) is the least
    • developed of the Green Technology sectors but provides
    • the most dynamic opportunity for growth, while the firms
    • are focused on technology , sustainability , and profitability .
    • This is where VC $’s are currently being invested in Los
    • Angeles and Orange County;
      • Energy Generation - $222 million
      • Energy Storage - $40 million
      • Transportation - $26 million
      • Water & Wastewater - $16 million
      • Energy Infrastructure - $15 million
  • Workforce Demand in Energy & Technology
    • The Solar industry is one of the largest component in Energy
    • Generation. A recent assessment of Solar’s current and
    • future workforce in Silicon Valley revealed-
    • Currently 1,500 workers in Silicon Valley in Solar Industry
    • Industry growth is currently at about 35 percent per year
    • By 2017, Silicon Valley expect another 10,000 to 20,000
    • solar workers – 60% manufacturing & installation, 20%
    • sales & marketing, and 20 percent in engineering
