In November 2022, the Barr Foundation commissioned BW Research and Emerald Cities to research the clean energy workforce in New England. Their guiding questions were:
1) What is the current workforce ecosystem in New England?
2) What entry points and pathways exist for Minority and Women Business Enterprises (MWBEs) entering the space?
3) How can philanthropy and philanthropic funding complement public funding and incentives to advance clean energy workforce development?
The report and other supporting materials are now available online here. BW Research and Emerald Cities Collaborative will review the report’s findings on a webinar on September 19th from 12-1 pm. ET.
