Project quality is a top priority in the energy sector, where large and critical infrastructure projects (involving pipelines, transmission grid, and transportation corridors, as well as the upgrade of important community assets like schools, hospitals, manufacturing plants, shelters, businesses, and multifamily housing) are common. For this reason, many state energy officials may work with their governors and legislators to develop policies promoting quality installation, quality assurance, and workforce accreditation programs, which create a more highly skilled workforce able to apply their trade across industries and opportunities to increase their economic security and potential.
