Case Study: How Philadelphia is Preparing its Workforce to Deliver Home Energy Upgrades

June 20, 2024

Cities across the country report the need for more skilled professionals to complete residential clean energy upgrades. This lack of qualified professionals hinders completion of home energy upgrades—upgrades that are critical to reducing buildings’ energy consumption and carbon emissions.  

This case study profiles a home energy retrofit training program in Philadelphia that prepares participants to enter the clean energy workforce as retrofit technicians, solar electricians, energy inspectors, welders, and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) technicians.  

Elements of this program can be replicated to scale up the equitable development of a workforce ready to perform energy upgrades in owner-occupied housing.
