Virginia Energy Workforce Consortium
The energy industry is in the midst of a significant transformation with the implementation of game changing technologies, new build and a growing infrastructure, grid modernization, regulation and policy changes, and more. In Virginia, we have a diverse energy mix including solar, wind, coal, natural gas, and nuclear resources, and an energy strategy that supports economic development and job growth. In addition to the industry game changers and our energy strategy, the industry employs an aging workforce and a high number of workers who could retire and leave at any time. Virginia Energy Workforce Consortium members, partners, and alliances work together to build and strengthen collaborative efforts to significantly impact career awareness, education pathways, and approach tomorrow’s workforce needs.
