Emerging Workforce Trends in the U.S. Energy and Mining Industries:
A Call to Action
Recognizing the importance of understanding the state of the energy and mining workforce in the United States to assure a trained and skilled workforce of sufficient size for the future, the Department of Energy's (DOE's) National Energy technology Laboratory (NETL) contracted with the National Research Council (NRC) through a congressional request in P.L. 109-58 to perform a study of the emerging workforce trends in the U.S. energy and mining industries. This new report summarizes the findings of this study.
This briefing was for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on March 21, 2013 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
