Advanced Transportation &
Renewables Sector
AT&R Sector Description
The Advanced Transportation and Renewables Sector represents two industries
that are extremely important to the future of California, advanced transportation
and renewable energy. The clean energy technologies being developed and
marketed in this sector are becoming a critical part of the State’s strategy for
reducing our impact on climate as well as growing a green economy. California
has always been a world leader in clean energy technologies, but to maintain our
leadership, a superior workforce skilled for these rapidly changing technologies
must exist. The Chancellor’s Office is working in partnership with community
colleges, public schools, private industry, labor, economic development
organizations, and workforce development agencies to invest in the growth of this
sector. It has identified key talent to bring these stakeholders together and better
align CTE programs with industry needs. Ensuring that California has a highly
skilled, clean energy workforce is the goal of the Advanced Transportation and
Renewables Sector and the focus of its state-level Sector Navigator and Regional
Sector Navigators.
AT&R Growth in the Region
A Centers of Excellence environmental scan titled The Solar Industry &
Occupations: Distributed and Utility-scale Generation (February 2012),
predicts that solar projects to be built in this region over the next five years
will produce 5921 Megawatts of clean electric power. According to the study,
about two construction jobs will be created for every planned megawatt in a
utility-scale solar project, which totals 11,842 jobs during construction.
A study conducted by the Coachella Valley Economic Partnership under
contract with COD’s Workforce Innovation Partnerships grant (June 2012),
used job creation data gathered from similarly-built utility-scale renewable
energy projects across the country to better assess job creation potential of
projects planned in the region. The study estimates that 40,000 construction
jobs and more than 4,000 permanent positions will be created in San
Bernardino, Riverside, and Imperial County.
AT&R Growth in the Region
The Centers for Excellence study mentioned above (February 2012) states
that distributed generation is expected see the greatest growth. Nearly 2000
firms specialize in the installation, manufacturing, and distribution of these
systems and are expected to add 8,000 to 10,000 new installation jobs by
A report issued from the Governor’s Conference on Local Renewable Energy
titled, “California’s Transition to Local Renewable Energy: 12,000 Megawatts
By 2020” (June 7, 2012) states that while large energy projects (20 to 1,000
megawatts) are enabling California to make large strides toward the 33
percent Renewable Portfolio Standard goal, “just as important to that effort
are the thousands of smaller, local renewable energy systems (1 kilowatt to
20 megawatts) that Californians are building in their communities.”
AT&R Growth in the Region
The City of Riverside was recently named the “Number 1 Government Green
Fleet in the United States” at the 2012 Green Fleet Conference. It deploys 550
vehicles operating on compressed natural gas, electricity, or other fuel
Ryder Trucks announced that it received $38.7 million from the U.S. Dept. of
Energy and the California Energy Commission to replace the majority of its local
fleet with natural gas vehicles.
The Department of Energy awarded $1 million in December to the South Coast
Air Quality Management District for the “Community Readiness and Planning
for Plug-In Electric Vehicles and Charging Infrastructure” project.
The California Energy Commission approved more than $17 million in funding
that will be used to support clean transportation projects in the state. Some of
these funds will affect fleet operations in the Inland Empire, including
CALSTART Inc., $3.52 million. The funds are targeted toward expansion of the
California CLEAN Truck Demonstration Program.
AT&R Growth in the Region
Wind energy growth planned in the Tehachapi area and the upgrading of old
turbines to new in Palm Springs are creating the need for skilled technicians
in our region. The California Independent System Operator Corporation (ISO),
the state’s primary operator for its high-voltage network, reported on April 7,
2013 that California’s wind energy production levels reached a new all-time
high of 4,196 megawatts (MW).
Key AT&R Categories For Our Region
Utility-scale solar energy
Residential and distributed commercial solar energy
Heavy and light-duty CNG and LNG vehicles
Light-duty electric vehicles and charging systems
