Fastest-Growing (and Shrinking) Clean Energy Jobs


To find the fastest growing clean energy jobs, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed E2’s 2021 Clean Jobs America report. Jobs are ranked by growth in the three years from 2017-2020. Additional data on job growth in 2017-2019, and employment in 2017, 2019, and 2020 is also from E2.

E2 is a nonpartisan group advocating for environmental policies. The analysis is based on preliminary employment data from the 2021 U.S. Energy and Employment Report. USEER uses U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages data and a supplemental survey. 

Clean energy jobs span economic sectors and include jobs in renewable energy, solar and wind, storage & grid, energy efficiency, clean fuels, and clean vehicles. E2 does not include jobs in corn ethanol, woody biomass, large hydropower, and nuclear.
