Clean Energy Training Website Launches

By Boston Business Journal

A website that compiles Massachusetts academic and training programs for clean energy careers launched this week, with the goal of bolstering the stateâ¿¿s growing clean energy sector.

The site, the Massachusetts Clean Energy Careers Training & Education Directory, is located at http://cleanenergyeducation.org/. The database includes more than 140 clean energy-related education and training programs in Massachusetts at more than 80 institutions, according to a press release.

Visitors can view programs by type of degree, program or specialization, and the site also offers test preparation.

⿿The number of training programs springing up in Massachusetts is staggering,⿝ said Peter Rothstein, president of the New England Clean Energy Council, in announcing the site. ⿿Compiling those offerings in one place will make it easier for users to find the training they need and, ultimately, to better compete for jobs in clean energy.⿝

The organization developed the site with the nonprofit Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnership, which has been funded in part through a $90,000 grant from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center.
