In response to a continuous shortage of work-ready talent, PG&E (Pacific Gas and Electric) created PG&E PowerPathway™ Training Network to ensure its ability to address the workforce needs of the company and communities it serves.  PowerPathway is a collaborative effort between local community and four-year colleges, the public workforce development system, and unions, with the goal of creating a larger talent pool of qualified candidates to fill vacancies in clean tech vehicles, energy efficiency and renewables, engineering and the smart grid, and skilled crafts. These are organized through PG&E PowerPathway™ Training Network, which has now expanded to reach out to military veterans transitioning into the energy sector. Since 2008, more than 400 students have received training, of which 71 percent went on to be employed by either PG&E or one of its suppliers, and 70 percent progressed into a higher job classification within one year of being hired.
