The National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO) and the Energy Futures Initiative (EFI) will publicly release the 2018 U.S. Energy and Employment Report (USEER). This is the third installment of the energy jobs survey established by the U.S. Department of Energy in 2016, which offers data on employment trends in four key energy sectors: Electric Power Generation and Fuels; Transmission, Distribution and Storage; Energy Efficiency; and Motor Vehicles.

The 2018 USEER will be presented by former Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, President and CEO of EFI. He will be joined by David Terry, Executive Director of NASEO, and David Foster, the author of the report. The event will be livestreamed on the NASEO and EFI websites.

The USEER, and its appendix offering statistical breakdowns for all 50 states, is embargoed until the presentation on May 16.

“The USEER has proven to be an important tool for state energy officials, who will use this unique set of ‘all of the above’ energy jobs data to inform policy development and planning,” said David Terry of NASEO.

The USEER and its State appendix will be available for download at  www.USEenergyjobs.org from 10 a.m. ET on May 16.
