Globally, access to modern energy services, including efficient usage, is essential to realize 20th century, let alone 21st century, living standards.
  • A transition from inefficient use of fossil fuels to a clean, efficient energy system is key to managing urgent global risks such as climate change. Locally, demand is increasing for a trained energy workforce in Washington, due to an aging energy workforce and growth in emerging energy efficiency, grid modernization, and energy storage industries in the state.
