Solar Career Map
The Solar Career Map was developed by the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC). As National Administrator of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Solar Instructor Training Network, IREC worked with solar and workforce experts around the country — leaders from education, government, business, labor, and community — to produce this highly-acclaimed interactive tool.
About The Interstate Renewable Energy Council
The Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC), an independent not-for-profit organization since 1982, makes clean, efficient, sustainable energy possible for more Americans through forward-thinking regulatory reform, quality workforce development and consumer education.
Wind Career Map
The Wind Career Map was developed by the Wind Energy Technologies Office in DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy (EERE). The map explores an expanding universe of wind energy occupations, describing diverse jobs across the industry, charting possible progression between them, and identifying the high-quality training necessary to do them well.
