Energy Efficiency an Important Area of Study for Students

Energy efficiency is quickly becoming a key player in Virginia’s growing economy. The field has been shown to generate more than $300M in economic activity, supports 9,400 jobs, according to a report released today by the nonprofit trade association Virginia Energy Efficiency Council (VAEEC).

Based on a census conducted last fall to which 300 firms responded, the report underscores energy efficiency’s critical role in meeting energy demand, greenhouse gas emissions reductions, cost savings, job creation and other state and national goals.

This is an important area for us to consider as we continue to enhance our career and workforce development opportunities for students.
