Hi Ken, I hope you are staying safe and grounded during this difficult time, sending you lots of good thoughts. I've been thinking about you and your work to encourage more young people in the world of building automation. I wrote a blog recently that I thought you might like... hopefully starting a new non-profit fairly soon to help with this issue and others around the climate crisis and buildings.
we approach the 2020 election season, I’ve been spending time looking
through the many Green Stimulus proposals, Climate Action Plans and
other documents floating around to set visions and action plans for
future administrations, especially in light of the economic crisis of
the pandemic. In a series of posts, I’m going to share my observations
and critiques of these documents, from the perspective of a building
professional who works on climate. I hope they are helpful broadly.
Today we’re going to talk about job creation. Lots of visionary documents about clean/green economic progress talk about the creation of jobs. But I was pretty shocked by the fact that the majority of the potential (or existing) jobs discussed in these documents are in the building industry. In fact, according to E2’s 2020 Clean Jobs America report, of the 3.3 million workers nationwide in the “clean jobs economy” at the beginning of 2020, 2.4 million work in the building efficiency sector, compared to roughly half a million in clean energy.
