DOE Better Building Workforce Accelerator

Rural Studio is a founding member of the U.S. Department of Energy’s “Better Buildings Workforce Accelerator.” The Better Buildings Initiative calls on private, public, and non-profit organizations across all sectors to make substantial commitments to demonstrate specific innovative polices and approaches, which upon successful demonstration will accelerate investment in energy efficiency across our homes, buildings, and industrial facilities. Workforce development is one of the key pillars of Better Buildings. By tackling these issues through cross-sector collaboration between national organizations, federal agencies, and regional, state, and local leaders in building industries, the Better Buildings Workforce Accelerator is designed to increase the quantity, quality, diversity, and productivity of today’s building energy efficiency workforce. Members meet quarterly and share progress on our workforce development activities.
