NETL’s Regional Workforce Initiative (RWFI) will present a webinar briefing on the 2019 U.S. Energy and Employment Report (USEER) 1- 2 p.m. Thursday, May 30. The Webinar is free, but registration is limited. Interested persons can register here.
The online event is designed to inform participants about the current state of the energy and advanced manufacturing workforce for the tri-state (Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia) and the broader Appalachian region, as well as emerging national trends.
This is the first briefing on the regional and national results of the 2019 USEER. The information presented will be useful for stakeholders engaged in the planning and implementation of energy and manufacturing jobs, workforce strategies, and economic development forecasting.
USEER is an annual report based on input from more than 30,000 employers across 53 different energy technologies. The report provides insights about the people who meet the nation’s energy needs and identifies important trends and skill sets needed for the 21st century energy workforce.
The report was a joint project of the National Association of State Energy Officials and the Energy Futures Initiative.
The mission of NETL’s RWFI is to create a platform for regional stakeholders to engage the Laboratory and other federal agencies in collaborative workforce development efforts. These efforts complement energy and advanced manufacturing innovation and research by addressing the necessary workforce assessments and training.

For more than 100 years, the Laboratory has advanced technology to provide clean, reliable and affordable energy to the American people.
