Developing America's clean energy workforce

We’re doing more than just creating job opportunities for America’s skilled workers – we’re adding to their number. With every project, Ørsted is investing in educational and training initiatives that will help build a diverse, equitable renewables workforce.

Taking action to boost the clean energy workforce:

  • We signed a National Offshore Wind Agreement with North America’s Building Trades Union (NABTU). This historic agreement commits Ørsted to providing training to and employing a union workforce to construct and install all of our offshore wind farms
  • We’ve already invested $49 million in U.S. workforce development efforts, with major initiatives launched in Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, and Rhode Island
  • We sponsor teachers in the local school districts where our projects operate, helping them attend training sessions to learn how to incorporate STEM activities into their classwork

Creating jobs

Ørsted employs nearly 700 people in states across the country. And we’re growing quickly, creating hundreds of local jobs to stimulate the economy and meet increased U.S. energy needs
