US Energy & Employment Report 2017
You are here
The US Energy & Employment Report 2017, DOE's second annual energy jobs report, provides a more accurate, consistent and complete measure of direct energy employment across all sectors of the US economy. DOE had identified four major gaps in existing energy employment data: (1) business activities essential to the operation of traditional energy companies classified by the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) within the business activities of other sectors; (2) jobs associated with the production of renewable energy such as wind, solar geothermal, etc.; (3) jobs associated with energy efficiency; and, (4) jobs associated with energy efficiency in manufacturing processes.
USEER 2017 presents data that addresses the first three gaps in energy employment measurement. The fourth gap will be addressed in a separate report on US energy and manufacturing employment.
US Energy and Employment Report 2017 reports energy employment in four categories:
- Electric Power Generation & Fuels by industry
- Transmission, Distribution and Storage employment by industry
- Energy Efficiency employment by industry
- Motor Vehicles (autos, light and heavy duty trucks) manufacturing, maintenance and wholesale trade
The 2017 USEER State Report provides the demographic and sector analysis of each of these four categories for the given state.
