Atlas Public Policy is excited to host our tenth episode of “Buildings Hub Live,” where we spotlight the changemakers and technologies leading the charge to electrify our built environment. Join us on Tuesday, September 19 at 1:00 PM ET as we sit down with Mary MacPherson from the Department of Energy, Harley Stokes from the BlueGreen Alliance, and John Doherty from the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades, for a discussion on workforce development and contractor training in building decarbonization.
Developing a skilled, qualified workforce is essential to scaling building electrification around the country. Contractors serve as the key interlocuters with potential adopters as they decide what to install and provide important information on available technologies, incentives, benefits, and costs. But do we currently have the workforce necessary to achieve our building decarbonization goals, and if not, what programs and initiatives exist to change that? RSVP today to find out!
