Renewable Energy Career Maps

The Interstate Renewable Energy Council and the U.S. Department of Energy have developed and funded Renewable Energy Career Maps that explore a diverse range of occupations in the solar energy, climate control technology, bioenergy, green buildings, and wind energy fields. These Career Maps describe clean and renewable energy occupations, chart possible progressions, and identify the necessary credentials for each job.

Clean Energy Careers Video Series

In 2021, Xcel Energy and WPPI Energy collaborated with Slipstream to create educational videos in support of local schools and to encourage young minds to consider career opportunities within the energy sector — especially in the clean energy space.

To help generate awareness and develop lesson plans, Slipstream partnered with the Wisconsin K-12 Energy Education Program (KEEP) and the Cooperative Educational Service Agency (CESA).

Together, more than 80,000 high school students will have access to these videos and gain a greater understanding of career opportunities in the clean energy sector through a Virtual Career Symposium.

Careers highlighted in the videos include electric superintendents, lineworkers, installation workers for renewable energy projects, building operators, solar technicians, policymakers, and more.

Slipstream‘s goal is to get students motivated to explore careers that advance the future of how energy is generated, managed, and utilized in the built environment.

The target audience for this series was high school students and teachers.
