About the Industry


Clean Energy Industry Sector:

Council Members solar panels

Nevada has extensive renewable energy and energy efficiency resources and, because of its renewable base and its proximity to large energy markets, the state is on a successful path toward a clean energy economy.

Nevada’s renewable resources are balanced between the north and south. Northern Nevada is the established headquarters of geothermal resources in the U.S., with 9 of the 11 top geothermal firms in the U.S. located in Nevada.  In the U.S., Nevada is second only to California in installed geothermal capacity. Southern Nevada has higher solar and hydropower resources.

Sector Council
Strategic Plan 2013

Nevada’s demand for renewable energy  has been driven by the state’s renewable portfolio standard (RPS), which requires that Nevada utilities get 20 percent of their power from renewable sources by the year 2015 and  25 percent by 2025.  In addition to solar, qualifying renewable energy resources include biomass, geothermal energy, wind, certain hydropower, energy recovery processes, and waste tires (using microwave reduction).

Nevada is home to a number of solar projects, geothermal and wind projects that are currently under construction, or planned.  Those projects are concentrated between energy generation and energy efficiency projects, and will create clean energy jobs as well as construction jobs for Nevada.  (See E2 Environmental Entrepreneurs list of projects).

Growth of the clean energy sector requires support in the development of an available skilled workforce through relevant training and other market driven strategies.

The mission of the GWIB Clean Energy Sector Council is to identify workforce needs and develop initiatives to educate its workforce in support of the economic development goals of the state.
