What is Environmental Scanning? The systematic collection of information that can help colleges … choose opportunities to follow, determine how to allocate resources, and build strategic partnerships. This includes looking at both supply (training programs) and demand (industry workforce needs)

The systematic collection of information that can help colleges …

choose opportunities to follow,

determine how to allocate resources, and

build strategic partnerships.

This includes looking at both supply (training programs) and demand (industry workforce needs)

Why Environmental Scanning? Assist community colleges to identify opportunities and trends in the areas of economic and workforce development. Help colleges increase responsiveness by having better information for decision-making. Should our college add courses or a new program? Should our college reduce courses, modify or retire an older program? Do area colleges already offer this program? Is there a need for more training in our region?

Q & A

Understanding The Green Economy

Background Public Policy Driving Green Job Growth California’s Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) The Challenge Ambiguous definitions of the green economy with varying scopes and purpose.

Public Policy Driving Green Job Growth

California’s Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006

American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA)

The Challenge

Ambiguous definitions of the green economy with varying scopes and purpose.

Phase I: Provide a research-based framework to assist Community College administrators and faculty in studying what “green” is in terms of industries, occupations, and educational programs. Phase II: Collecting primary data to qualify existing and future labor market opportunities in green sectors. Identify possible gaps between demand and supply of prepared workforce. Green Study Research Objectives

Phase I: Provide a research-based framework to assist Community College administrators and faculty in studying what “green” is in terms of industries, occupations, and educational programs.

Phase II: Collecting primary data to qualify existing and future labor market opportunities in green sectors. Identify possible gaps between demand and supply of prepared workforce.

Phase I Methodology Secondary literature review and analysis Some of the reports: Green Jobs Guidebook (Environmental Defense Fund) Clean Technology and Green Economy (Collaborative Economics) Jobs in LA’s Green Technology Sector (Milken Institute) Executive interviews with industry experts Coding the information using national classification systems North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) Review of the draft by industry experts Some of the Experts: Bill Buratto, VCEDA Greg Freeman, LAEDC LMID Industry and Occupational Specialists Greg Newhouse, ATTEi Tim O ’ Connor, EDF Linda Parker, Kern Wind Energy Association

Operational Definitions Green Firm Green Job A Green Firm is an organization that provides products and/or services that are aimed at utilizing resources more efficiently, providing renewable sources of energy, lowering greenhouse gas emissions, or otherwise minimizing environmental impact. A Green Job is an occupation that 1) directly works with policies, information, materials, and/or technologies that contribute to minimizing environmental impact, and 2) requires specialized knowledge, skills, training, or experience in these areas.

3 Types of Green Jobs Required Green Skill Some jobs Require an additional Green Skill necessary for continued employment within a traditional occupation. May require a revision of existing curriculum. Green Skill Upgrade New Green Job Receiving an additional, but not critical, Green Skill Upgrade makes traditional workers more marketable. Consider new certificates or fee-based training. New skills transition a worker into a completely New Green Job with a new title. New programs need to be developed for these emerging jobs.

Employment Projections Wind Turbine Technicians can be calculated per: Megawatt: 10-20 Wind Technicians needed per 100 Megawatts Turbine: 1 technician per 15 turbines California’s future wind industry will require anywhere between 200 – 877 technicians in total (not annually), depending upon a number of variables identified in the full report.

Wind Turbine Technicians can be calculated per:

Megawatt: 10-20 Wind Technicians needed per 100 Megawatts

Turbine: 1 technician per 15 turbines

California’s future wind industry will require anywhere between 200 – 877 technicians in total (not annually), depending upon a number of variables identified in the full report.

Wind Technician Wages Entry level wind energy technicians earn wages from $15 to $25 per hour. Some firms indicate they advance workers quickly into supervisory/team leader positions paying more than $60,000 per year for workers with only 3 years experience. Experienced technicians, those traveling with overtime, and most supervisors can earn as much as $120,000 annually.

Community College Proximity to Wind Farms

Community College Proximity to Wind Farms

Wind Scan Recommendations Which colleges in the California Community College system should offer wind courses or programs? The three main criteria to consider are: 1) is the college close to where wind farms are located, 2) is there labor market demand for wind technicians within their service area, and 3) does the college have related programs to build upon for training wind technicians.

3) does the college have related programs to build upon for training wind technicians.

Wind Scan Recommendations (cont.) If a college determines that a wind turbine technician program is warranted, two options for responding should be considered: Deliver the 208 hour CA Advanced Transportation Technology and Energy (ATTE) wind technician curriculum in a Contract Education format. Build wind programs leveraged off of an industrial technology program such as mechatronics, mechanical engineering, hydraulics, electronics, electricity, automotive, and aviation.
