Event type: 

Times are EST - The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) invites you to attend a free webcast on the findings of "Job Impacts of a National Renewable Electricity Standard", a study commissioned by the RES Alliance for Jobs and conducted by Navigant Consulting. The study concludes that a 25% renewable electricity standard (RES) by 2025 will support the creation of an additional 274,000 jobs across the country in a number of renewable energy sectors. The wind industry would see an additional 116,000 jobs. AWEA will present the key findings of the report, answer your questions about the findings, and discuss how you can leverage this study to urge Congress to pass a national RES.

The results of the jobs study are available at www.res-alliance.org/res-jobs-study.
