EnergeiaWorks just finished the most successful first half of the year in company history. In fact, in July, we surpassed our best year ever! Great for EnergeiaWorks but I can’t take complete credit. There’s never been a demand for human capital in clean energy like there is now.
There’s already a human capital and labor shortage across solar, energy storage, wind, energy efficiency, and electric vehicle industries. Tripling the workforce is almost too much to comprehend. But of course, it’s amazing for our industry, planet, and nation. But is this feasible? Where is the talent going to come from in an industry that is already experiencing a talent shortage?
Obviously, some candidates will rise up through the educational channels, and some will be sourced from other industries with transferable skills, but I always worry about an industry that hires TOO fast (check your history on the .com boom and bust). Trust me — EnergeiaWorks will be at the forefront of this growth, but as an industry, we need to work towards building and diversifying the talent pool.
