Careers in Energy Week, from October 15-21, 2012, is an effort with Center for Energy Workforce Development (CEWD) and member companies aimed to increase the public’s awareness about energy careers through a concerted nationwide effort.

The week provides an opportunity for energy companies to connect with their local communities to build awareness of the challenges facing the U.S. around filling critical-jobs in the energy industry.

This year, in celebration of California Careers in Energy Week, PG&E, Sempra and SMUD are partnering with the California Energy and Utility Workforce Consortium to sponsor an innovation idea competition for California community college and university students.
