Press release date: August 26, 2010

The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Technology Offices recently released a request for information (RFI) on Energy Education and Workforce Development. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is now accepting feedback from all members and constituents as it formulates comments to submit to the DOE.

According to the RFI, the DOE is eager to create and support education and workforce development programs specific to the development, deployment, and installation of applied energy technologies in order to build a workforce able to carry out the DOE's mission and advance low-carbon energy technologies. These efforts are part of a larger government initiative to improve the country's science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education and build a more knowledge-intensive workforce overall.

The DOE has requested information on these topics:

the status of energy systems education and workforce development programs at the K-12, community college, undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral level

gaps and deficiencies in energy education and technical training

energy sectors suffering the greatest workforce and professional skills shortage

methods to increase energy literacy, attracting the best and brightest students into the clean energy field

Additional topics that the DOE seeks comments on can be found in the RFI.

The collected information is intended to help DOE's Technology Offices define the scope and priorities of its education and workforce development efforts. Feedback is welcome from representatives of energy associations, academic associations, academia, the private sector, non-profits, and others.

All stakeholders are invited to submit comments for inclusion in ANSI's response to the DOE by September 13, 2010. Comments can be sent to Roy Swift, Ph.D., ANSI senior program director, personnel credentialing accreditation programs, at comments@ansi.org.
