Firstly, Happy Belated Earth Day to all that celebrated on Saturday!
Currently, renewable energy generates around 20% of all electricity in the US. This percentage increases daily - you may have seen more solar panels popping up around your neighborhood! This allows us greater potential to modernize the grid through renewable energy within our communities. As the potential for more energy generation increases, the need for more jobs within this sector increases as well. In fact, with the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA), the more than $50 billion in clean manufacturing investments in the law will create an estimated 900,000 jobs over the next decade. These strong investments will initiate a manufacturing revitalization and help to move clean manufacturing to center stage within the US.
In this fourth and final installment of our Environmental Sustainability blog series, we are going to take a look at commonly used software solutions that our clients in the Renewable Energy sector have implemented to assist with sustainable energy production.
