CEWD: Summer Series: Decarbonization and the Future of the Energy Workforce

The scope and pace of energy transition in the United States depend on the interplay between technology and workforce. The changes in the workforce may exacerbate existing inequalities, skills shortages, and talent pipeline challenges. They may dramatically impact certain segments and form new ones in a sector that’s already undergoing a broad digital transformation, which the pandemic accelerated. At the same time, these challenges will create opportunities for power companies to develop a new image, operating model, and culture to attract and retain talent. This panel of leaders from Deloitte’s Utilities and Renewables Practice, will explore how the core and broader power sector would grow and the workforce composition would change to meet Biden’s target to decarbonize the power sector by 2035. We will then delve into novel analysis of the growing gaps in the digital skills required in the power sector and what can be done to address them. Finally, we will discuss how power companies could rebrand, retrain the existing talent, and recruit from new talent pools to achieve this transition. CPE credit: This program is CPE-eligible for 2 credits, if you participate in the full session. (Attendance will be tracked by responses to knowledge check questions provided throughout the course. Responses are submitted through the Zoom Meeting platform. All knowledge check questions must be answered in order to receive full credit.)
