The U.S. energy economy accounts for millions of jobs – and they’re expected to keep growing. Technology and policy innovation in the energy sector has created vast economic development opportunities for state and local governments and private sector job creation across the country. 

State Energy Offices can play a crucial role in growing energy employment, promoting a high quality of energy jobs, projects, and infrastructure, and helping ensure the economic benefits of energy sector growth benefit all their constituents, especially underserved and disadvantaged communities. NASEO works to share model policies and programs and to connect state policymakers with energy employment tools, data, and partnerships.
