Energy Voice Institute (EVI) was created to address critical energy issues.Â Critical issues include public education about the energy industry with an emphasis on balancing both economic and environmental concerns.
Workforce development is also a critical component. Many people that have worked in the electric energy industry for the last thirty years are reaching retirement age and there is a huge gap in the employees that staff the electric utilities in the 25-40 age range.Â The focus of so many young people seems to be in other industries.Â The loss of workers is hitting the industry hard.Â We need to be pro-active in creating a pool of potential employees by spreading information on the rewarding and beneficial job opportunities that are available.
2013 Energy Career Days
The 2013 edition of Energy Career Days will be held September 24-25 at the Adams County Fairgrounds. This will be the fifth year the energy industry has partnered with the construction industry to provide these "hands-on" experiences. Hands-on activities for high school students will showcase potential jobs in the energy industry especially, electric, natural gas, solar, and wind renewables. 604-975-8079.
