Strong growth in the global demand for electric power is projected for the next half-century and beyond. This growth will provide great opportunities for Western Pennsylvania (WPA) companies that are leaders in the chain of industries that generate, transmit and distribute electric power. While great opportunities await these companies, they are all preparing for the impact of workforce and technology development neglect that was dominant in their industries in the 1980s and 1990s. Representatives of these industries have indicated that up to half of their engineering workforce will be eligible for retirement within the next decade.
